Abstract: Adelaide Festival of Ideas session, RiAus Auditorium, 10:30am, Saturday 8th October, 2011.
New York City is growing rapidly at a time when the earth’s climate is changing rapidly. On Earth Day 2007, New York’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg launched PlaNYC, a 135-point plan to accommodate 1 million more New Yorkers while reducing the city’s carbon footprint by 30 percent by 2030. The plan is highly technical, and it is based on a new vision of civic virtue. NYC’s Department of City Planning is developing a new language of design to interpret this sustainable civic virtue, and is exemplified by a number of recent developments, including the new High Line Park and its surrounding neighbourhood.
