Charles Renfro: The Future of Cities

Brad Grossman in conversation presented in collaboration with Zeitguide
Charles Renfro and Brad Grossman

Covid-19 is profoundly changing cities worldwide. Globally-renowned architect Charles Renfro has some ideas for how we can make them better for everyone.

Join Charles Renfro, partner at Diller Scofidio + Renfro, for a discussion with Zeitguide founder Brad Grossman about how public and private spaces are changing in 2020—and where they might go next. Renfro shares his innovative ideas for making our cities safer, more equitable, and culturally richer in the wake of the pandemic—including breaking down walls to create more outdoor public gathering spaces, dismantling zoning practices and other forms of systemic racism, finding new routes to home ownership, letting the arts guide our national rebuilding process, and more. Celebrated for his work on New York’s High Line and The Shed, don't miss this visionary thinker on the future of New York City.
