This year, Archtober partnered with the Four Freedoms Park Alliance to host a special Archtober Summer Kickoff event on 07.12.17. FDR Four Freedoms Park in Roosevelt Island, a four-acre memorial to FDR that celebrates the Four Freedoms he articulated in his 1941 State of the Union, offers a stunning view of Manhattanhenge, the day when the sun sets perfectly in line with the city’s street grid. This year, a dramatic sky substituted for the sun to make the event a great success, drawing 1,000 guests despite the threat of thunder and rain.

Driverless Future Challenge Names Winner

The Driverless Future Challenge, organized by AIA New York in partnership with the City of New York, New Lab, and Fast Company, came to a close on 07.11.17 with the lively presentation of the four finalists’ visions of a world populated with autonomous vehicles. New York City-based architecture firm FXFOWLE, in partnership with Sam Schwartz Engineering, won the competition with their modular streetscape system “Public Square,” which now has a patent pending. Other contenders included driverless farm-to-table food trucks; “smart curb” technology with an aim to coordinate and ease high-density bottleneck traffic zones; and an autonomous vehicle extension of MTA’s limited options for disabled commuters. The five person jury panel consisted of members of the Department of Transportation, the Economic Development Corporation, the Taxi and Limousine Commission, the Department of City Planning, and one representative from Brooklyn-based, tech workspace New Lab. As a part of its winnings, the “Public Square” team will have access to New Lab and all of its resources to build a working prototype of their idea. Read More
