Exhibition Opening Symposium: Lessons From Robert Moses

Forty years after the reign of Robert Moses, key city players consider urbanism in the 21st century and set out their vision for the future. Topics to be addressed include regional planning, open space initiatives, transportation, sustainable development, and New York’s role as an international city. James S. Russel, the architecture critic for Bloomberg, will moderate this program featuring a keynote address by Deputy Mayor Daniel Doctoroff and a roundtable discussion with Majora Carter, Anthony Coscia, Tony Hiss and John Sexton.

This is part of a three part exhibition on Robert Moses conducted in conjunction with the Wallach Gallery of Columbia University and the Queens Museum of Art.
