Parsons Festival 2017: Street Seats

In collaboration with the NYC Department of Transportation (DOT), the Design Build course of the School of Constructed Environments, taught by professors Huy Bui and Carlos Gomez de Llarena, has developed this year’s Street Seats project for the corner of 13th Street and Fifth Avenue.

The DOT Street Seats program reclaims portions of New York City’s streets for much needed public space. These spaces provide a safe and attractive seating area for the public and the New School community. The course explored alternatives to the city’s standard Street Seats design and imagined a space that reflects The New School’s ethics and vision. The New School will welcome spring by exhibiting an innovative space where its community and the public will converge.
