EVENT: 4C: Four Corridors: Foreseeing the Region of the Future


What will the New York metropolitan area look like in 25 years? How could climate change transform the appearance and uses of our coastline? What will the suburbs of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut look like in the future given the vast changes possible with new technologies?

Earlier this year, RPA launched  a design competition which called on architects, landscape architects, designers and urban planners to visually demonstrate how policy changes, new investments and innovative thinking proposed in A Region Transformed: the Fourth Regional Plan  (to be released this fall) can reshape different geographic areas in the Tri-State region and prepare them for the next 25 years. Four design teams were chosen to explore strategies and visions for four large geographic corridors – called the 4C – that together represent a range of policy and design challenges to be confronted in the Fourth Regional Plan.

Join RPA on Friday, August 4 for the opening celebration of 4C: Four Corridors: Foreseeing the Region of the Future at The Chapel at Fort Tilden. This exhibit  showcases the innovative designs of the four teams, as well as the role design has played in RPA’s previous regional plans. It will remain open to the public from August 4 through September 17 on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays between 11am and 6pm.
