Zoning @ 100

Meditations on the 100th Anniversary of New York City’s Zoning Resolution

On July 25th, 1916, New York City passed the first comprehensive zoning law, forever changing  how cities everywhere would be shaped. We asked leading thinkers and practitioners to reflect on:

    • What has the last 100 years of zoning meant to New York City?
    • How does zoning affect the City and your practice today?
    • What will or should the next 100 years of zoning look like?
