Post Sustainability: New Directions in Ecological Urban Design
A discussion of case studies, projects, and outreach efforts, that aim to illuminate the environmental possibilities of New York City and inspire solutions in areas like it around the world. I will unpack the working methods of a unique laboratory for scientists, artists, architects, students, and individuals of many backgrounds to explore and advance the larger framework of socio-ecological design. This group develops innovative solutions and technologies for local sustainability in energy, transportation, infrastructure, buildings, waste treatment, food, and water.

The Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP) is a unique public-private research center of NYU that uses New York City as its laboratory and classroom to help cities around the world become more productive, livable, equitable, and resilient. CUSP observes, analyzes, and models cities to optimize outcomes, prototype new solutions, formalize new tools and processes, and develop new expertise/experts. The CUSP research seminars aim to promote an intellectual community around urban informatics, an intrinsically multidisciplinary field, by facilitating discussions on various research topics related to the intersection of big data and urban planning.
