The School of Consturcted Environments at Parsons presents Nina Rappaport, author and curator of Vertical Urban Factory; Rama Chorpash, Director of MFA Industrial Design at Parsons, whose creative-practice focuses on Making in Place; Victoria Hattam, Professor of Politics, The New School; and Sonam Velani, Policy Advisor to the Deputy Mayor of NYC will engage in a discussion about renewal of industry in the city.

They will address the topic from the spatial, economic, and design-to-production perspectives both on the local and global scale in the new economy. Today, manufacturing has shifted to be local, clean, and flexible, returning to cities in a new form that could be more transparent, hybrid, and equitable.
