The Future of Place


TTF is delighted to welcome Robert Hammond | Co-Founder and Executive Director | Friends of the High Line, New York & Dan Barasch | Co-Founder | Lowline, New York to our inaugural placemaking event ‘The Future of Place’.

Hear how Robert Hammond helped lead the effort to build an elevated park on an abandoned railway line in Manhattan and Dan Barasch’s vision to create the world’s first underground park below the streets of New York City in the Williamsburg Bridge Trolley Terminal.

Hear their insights, challenges and most importantly learnings to create destinations which offer greater value to the community and improve the overall landscape of benefit for all.

Following their addresses, Robert Hammond and Dan Barasch will join a panel of local speakers for a facilitated discussion around local and global trends, collaboration with partners and embracing the placemaking movement.
