In the wake of the volatile situation many refugees face in Europe, and with the Trump Administration’s proposed immigration ban and the questioning of US Sanctuary City status, the Institute for Public Architecture is launching the Open City series. The series will look at the challenges and solutions to supporting and housing vulnerable populations in our city centers, including refugees, emergency shelter populations, and disaster victims.
Jean-Louis Missika will present two humanitarian centers recently opened in Paris. Panelists will then discuss NYC and Paris initiatives meant to support immigrants and other vulnerable populations in inclusive communities.
Michael Kimmelman, New York Times Architecture Critic, will moderate the discussion with:
- Jean-Louis Missika, Paris Deputy Mayor of Architecture, Planning and Economic Development
- Nisha Agarwal, Commissioner, NYC Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs
- Saskia Sassen, Professor of Sociology, Columbia University
