What happens when exteriors become interiors?
Please join the AIANY Interiors Committee as we investigate how architectural solutions to outdoor dining during the COVID-19 pandemic have affected the streetscape. These “exterior interiors” join a number of urban planning approaches that have altered our city streets…and created new opportunities and challenges. Learn how our profession is actively addressing the immediate need for businesses to offer outdoor dining options to remain in business and investigate how architecture can accommodate outdoor interactions and what urban design interventions the city can incorporate to facilitate this initiative permanently. This panel of practitioners will discuss what considerations, concepts, and policies the architecture and urban design community should be developing in conjunction with the city to reenvision our streets.
