In the second evening program, Alison Mears (School of Design Strategies) and Laura Briggs (School of Constructed Environments) presented two innovative projects that they have developed together with teams of students and faculty at The New School.  Mears worked in the Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans as part of the Chase Community Development Competition, and Briggs in the Deanwood neighborhood in Washington DC as part of a Solar Decathlon team.

Dean Bill Morrish led a vigorous discussion with comments from Daniel Hernandez (Jonathan Rose Companies), Kubi Ackerman (Columbia Univ) and Lara Penin (School of Design Strategies).

Audience members were able to spend time with the show and also visit the Arnold and Sheila Aronson Galleries which showcased a work-in-progress exhibition of Empowerhouse, the Solar Decathlon collaboration of Parsons with Stevens Institute of Technology
