“The Future of New York’s Skyline” featuring four “starchitects” brought a diverse crowd of over 800 to 92Y last week. The panel discussion featured the biggest names impacting New York City’s skyline: Richard Meier, Bjarke Ingels, Annabelle Selldorf and Rick Cook. C.J. Hughes, a long-time contributor to The New York Times, moderated the Talk which was created in partnership with Hundred Stories, a PR and marketing firm with a specialization in real estate. The event’s corporate sponsor was 301 East 50th Street, a new luxury condominium being marketed by Douglas Elliman Development Marketing.
The conversation focused on the ever-evolving real estate market and what’s next for New York’s neighborhoods. Topics included the architect’s role in affordable housing, the projects that now epitomize the city, how to successfully build for the future, the preservation of New York’s iconic landmarks and the need for more public outdoor spaces.
