Overview: In today's evolving world, how can parks and public spaces like the National Mall thrive while successfully responding to the diverse and often competing array of future needs? The National Capital Planning Commission, the Trust for the National Mall, the City Parks Alliance, and the National Archives host a panel discussion to explore new ways to think about public space. The public program features a dynamic panel:
Director of Design, National Endowment for the Arts
Founder and Principal, Rebar
Artist and Cultural Planner
Former President, Prospect Park Alliance
Former Administrator, Prospect Park
The program is presented in partnership by the National Capital Planning Commission, Trust for the National Mall, City Parks Alliance, and the National Archives. The program is a companion event to the Design Competition, sponsored by the Trust, in which many of the country’s leading designers are proposing designs to enhance the beauty, usefulness and sustainability of the three major areas on the National Mall prioritized for redesign in the National Mall Plan.
