Courtesy of SITELAB urban studio City Makers, a new salon series sponsored by TraceSF, kicks off on October 28 at StoreFrontlab. Hosted by Amanda Loper of David Baker Architects and Emily Gosack of Jensen Architects, City Makers grew out of a desire to hear more from the women at the forefront of City Making, but their larger aim is to create an ongoing conversation that expands the notion of who makes our cities.
First up is Laura Crescimano, a founding principal of SITELAB urban studio, the San Francisco-based design strategy firm that is rethinking how we create public spaces. After launching in 2012, SITELAB’s research-driven approach to understanding what makes communities and spaces hum quickly captured the attention of some big players, but Crescimano and her partners, Evan Rose and Elanor Pries, are interested in all scales of city making. Her recent projects range from master plans for the 5M Project and Pier 70, both with Forest City, to a 300-pixel infographic for the non-proift, Destination Home.
Loper and Gosack promise real discussion, curated drinks and a special twist—each featured city maker invites the next city maker and serves as moderator—will keep the salon fresh and expanding.
