Online registration for Closer LOOK: Demolition is now closed. A limited number of tickets may be available at the door.

In January 2019, a demolition permit was filed for the 52-story, 1.5-million-square-foot Union Carbide Building. According to PlaNYC, the city generates roughly seven million tons of construction and demolition debris a year, nearly twice the municipal solid waste output of London. New York City is also home to 23 (soon to be 24) of the world’s tallest intentionally demolished buildings. Join MAS as we take a closer look at demolition effects as well as alternative pathways for preservation and sustainability. MAS President Elizabeth Goldstein will moderate a conversation with Allison Arlotta, Research Specialist for Robert A.M. Stern Architects, Ana Baptista, Chair of Environmental Policy and Sustainability Management Program and Assistant Professor of Professional Practice at The New School, and Kate Kitchener, Chief of Staff for Bureau of Recycling and Sustainability at the NYC Department of Sanitation.
Event Registration is closed.
