Marc Norman; director of UPSTATE: Center for Design, Research, and Real Estate; will be bringing his broad experience in urban planning, community development, affordable housing and finance to the GSD as a new Loeb Fellow this August. For a preview, catch him at the Making the Emergent City panel discussion hosted by the World Policy Institute and the Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute on Monday, May 12.
The discussion will explore the role of the informal and formal sectors in shaping the growth–or contraction–of cities in the 21st century. Jill Simone Gross of Hunter College and Emeka Okafor of Maker Faire Africa will join Norman on the panel, which is moderated by Kavitha Rajagopalan of the World Policy Institute.
