If you are not already committed to attending today's meeting of the Zoning Board of Appeals or the Hudson Housing Authority subcommittee on new development, there one more thing of interest happening today at 6:00 p.m. Basilica Hudson, as part of its Basilica Conversation Series, is hosting "Hudson Waterfront: Public Space Ideas for the Future."
The discussion will explore Hudson-specific waterfront proposals developed during the past year by students from Pratt Institute's School of Architecture and Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. The proposals address such topics as net zero energy, landfills and ecologic regeneration, affordable housing, terraforming, and more. There will be a panel of respondents who will share thoughts and field questions after each presentation. Among the participants on the respondents panel are John Rosenthal, Fourth Ward alderman, and Ben Fain, owner of Kitty's at 60 South Front Street.
The event is co-presented by Cathryn Dwyre, co-principal of pneumastudio, adjunct associate professor at Pratt Institute's School of Architecture, and a Basilica Arts board member; and Kaja Kuehl, founder of youarethecity and adjunct associate professor at Columbia's GSAPP.
