The New Museum took its movable project, IDEAS CITY, to Istanbul—invited there by the Istanbul Design Biennial and sponsored by Audi Urban Future Initiative. We hosted a keynote address by Amanda Burden, Commissioner of the New York City Department of City Planning, two panels devoted to the topic of Untapped Capital (Panel 1: Structures and Networks; Panel 2: Collaboration and Exchange), and two workshops in collaboration with SALT Galata. A final panel was devoted to a discussion of the role of mobility in the cities of tomorrow. During the course of these myriad events, a multitude of adjectives were applied to the word “city.” Those listed below were part of presentations, provocations, conceptualizations, and conversations.
Please take a moment and let us know what adjective/adjectives apply to your city and let’s continue the discussion.
