IDEAS CITY | Basilica, St. Patrick's Old Cathedral

The Municipal Art Society and Architizer have teamed up for a second time to bring you Pitching the City 2015, IDEAS CITY Festival’s high-profile anchoring event that offers a platform for fresh urban ideas. Five innovative projects will be pitched to a live audience and esteemed panel featuring Majora Carter (StartUp Box), Shohei Shigematsu (OMA), Scott Anderson (Control Group), and Michelle Mullineaux (Blue State Digital). WNYC correspondent and event emcee Ilya Marritz (WNYC) will moderate feedback sessions after each pitch, and the event will culminate in a live audience poll for the favorite project. Help us identify the next best urban idea!

Projects to be pitched this year include Docklands Surf Park Melbourne, East River Skyway, Open Lobby, The Underline, and NYC Real Estate Investment Cooperative.

The event is FREE but registration is required.
