Have you heard about the “Sustainability By Design” programs at the Center? Developed in cooperation with Architecture 2030 and Seattle AIA+2030, these continuing education events are aimed at giving NY-based architects practical tools to reduce carbon emissions in their designs. The next module is taking place Friday, 10.28.11 from 1:00-5:00pm. Click the link to RSVP.

Heritage Ball is this Thursday followed by the Party@theCenter. Tickets for the Party are still on sale ($50 in advance, $75 at the door). Click here to RSVP. Hope to see you there!

Note: The Center for an Urban Future has launched a survey to examine the importance of NYC’s design and architecture schools. By tracking the ways that design professionals in the New York metro area interact (or fail to interact) with the city’s design schools, the survey will provide new data on their economic importance. The survey can be filled out in 1-4 minutes, and a $500 cash prize will be awarded to a randomly-selected individual. Click here to participate.
