About Next New York


During the spring of 2013, the Forum for Urban Design invited distinguished civic leaders, developers and designers to pitch bold visions for a more competitive, livable and sustainable New York. The result was more than forty courageous proposals imagining rebuilt infrastructure, reformed government, and an animated public realm.

About the Forum for Urban Design


The Forum For Urban Design convenes the world’s preeminent leaders in architecture, urban planning, design and development -- as well as professionals in government, education and journalism whose work intersects with the built environment -- to discuss and debate the defining issues that face our cities.

The Forum, based in New York City, engages its fellows through programs and publications that promote awareness of contemporary urban design’s best practices and greatest challenges. Throughout the year, it hosts semi-annual Fellows Forums, exclusive tours of ongoing urban design projects, public roundtable discussions, and Director's Luncheons for the Forum's leadership. The Forum also publishes the Urban Design Review, a journal containing reviews of recent texts and exhibitions relevant to the field of urban design.
