Urban Greening Lab: New York
Explores the theory and practice of urban “greening” as it has been planned, debated, and implemented in New York City. Drawing on analytical tools from the social and biophysical sciences, considers how New York’s historical and contemporary context have shaped the meaning, implementation, and social experience of environmental improvement. Examines “What does it mean to ‘green’ New York? What does it mean to ‘green’ a city?” The analytical approach seeks to integrate ecosystem ecology concepts, urban design principles, and social scientific sensibilities.
