Majora Carter: Communities as Assets, Not Omelets
Robert Moses said, "You canâ€™t make an omelet without breaking eggs." So, who ordered the omelet? Big projects promise big returns, but may disproportionately benefit the well-connected. Are the economic fibers that connect communities undermined as a result? In a provocative lecture, Majora Carter, Executive Director of Sustainable South Bronx, will discuss the implications of the "top-down" paradigm that she argues characterizes development today. Presented in conjunction with Robert Moses and the Modern City: Remaking the Metropolis.
