Zoning Bonus to Zucotti Park: Public Space, Private Property, and Social Protest

28 Oct

Join us for a panel discussion about the original plan and continuing life of the privately-owned public plaza now known as Zucotti Park.  Architect Tom Killian will speak about his role in planning Liberty Plaza in conjunction with the construction of the U.S. Steel Building beginning in the late 1960’s.  Zak Cunningham, activist and occupier, will discuss the use of this space by Occupy Wall Street.
