Beyond Zuccotti Park: Freedom of Assembly and the Occupation of Public Space

“Where are the spaces in which we act as a community? Who governs them? Who decides on their design? Their use? And should we blur the controls, the boundaries, the authority, and the thresholds between public and private space, between streets and sidewalks?”
– Michael Kimmelman

Celebrate the release of Beyond Zuccotti Park: Freedom of Assembly and the Occupation of Public Space, a New Village Press book. 

Monday, September 10
The Center for Architecture
536 LaGuardia Place, Manhattan

The exhibit will be on display through September 22. If you are unable to attend, you can stay connected by visiting the Beyond Zuccotti Park website or following on Twitter (@BeyondZuccotti) or Facebook.

On Sunday, September 16, one year following the start of the Occupy Wall Street movement, the Center for Architecture is also holding its third public space symposium, Freedom of Assembly: Public Space Today, Part 3. Beyond Zuccotti Park editors Ron Shiffman, Rick Bell, and Lynne Elizabeth will be speaking, as well as contributors Roland Anglin, Michael Pyatok and Signe Nielsen. The exhibit marks the beginning of a larger initiative—Democracy, Equity, and Public Space—of which Beyond Zuccotti Park is a key component. The initiative includes a traveling multimedia exhibit, public forums, popular and academic study groups, policy advocacy and a website. Book tours, forums, and exhibits are also in planning for Newark, Oakland/Berkeley, Chicago, Seattle, Salt Lake City, Los Angeles, Washington DC and Boston.
