In partnership with the Citizens Housing and Planning Council of New York, Japan Society hosts an international symposium to take a fresh look at space and housing standards in New York City that better reflect the needs of dynamic 21st-century households. The New York City housing industry looks toward Japan for best practices and innovative options in the design standards of smaller-sized, non-traditional housing units. We welcome Professor Azby Brown, renowned Professor of Architectural Design at the Kanazawa Institute of Technology and Founder and Director of the Future Design Institute, ground-breaking Tokyo architect, Tomoyuki Utsumi and Innovators Network member Rosanne Haggerty, Founder and President, Common Ground Community. Architects from Barcelona, Leipzig, San Diego and Montreal also present their work and discuss how they are responding to the needs of the populations in their respective cities.

Breakfast and lunch will be served.
