Welcome!

Welcome to the Tactical Urbanism collab. In this class we will look at the economy and politics of housing in NYC, its impact on NYC residents, and potential future models to create sustainable housing economies for all residents. We will speak to several NY housing advocacy groups about their goals, media strategies and obstacles, and brainstorm with them how to visualize & distribute essential information about the politics of housing in new ways to reach broader audiences. After hearing from a range of designers working with spatial data and design practices, and artists working with location based media and site specific intervention; students will research and design creative responses to the goals of our partnering groups.
