Experiencing Democracy

Take a look at the story of Tremont, Bronx, NYC. Over time we can see a spatial history of infractions to democracy. Five key themes to ground a collective understanding of changes to the built environment that fail to deliver on values we aim to uphold as a people:

Human Needs

A similar view from the High Line can be used to reflect on how space is shaped around us. We will display key moments in the spatial history of this area and prepare ourselves to imagine opportunities for the futures we hope to bring to life.

How does democracy show up in your everyday life?
