“New York is at the forefront of an urban Green Revolution, and the emergence of public spaces like the High Line is emblematic of this transformation. Conversely, Zurich is witnessing the most rapid building boom in its history—and turning gray. What are the implications of these dynamics from design and historical perspectives? Explore new answers in these interdisciplinary panels, challenging notions of “urban” and “nature.” ”
