Since 1919, The New School has been home to scholars, creators, and activists who challenge convention and boldly make their mark on the world.
To celebrate this groundbreaking legacy, we are opening our doors to the public for a weeklong festival of innovative performances, talks, workshops, screenings, exhibitions, and more.

On October 1–6, 2019, join us as we reflect on a century of world-changing ideas and together imagine a new kind of future.

Parsons Faculty Member Elizabeth Chakkappan hosts a conversation between Emma Fuller, a senior architecture student, and Lia Gartner, New School University’s V.P. for Buildings, based on a research paper Emma wrote during her freshman year in Elizabeth’s class.  After inviting Emma to speak about her 2017 critique of the forms and functions of the University Center Building using the history and mission of New School University as a guiding analytical framework, as well as how her thoughts have evolved and changed during the course of her undergraduate education – and inviting Lia to address the same themes from the planning perspective – Elizabeth will facilitate a discussion between the two speakers about the future of building at New School and how the process can involve more community participation.
