As part of a Transdisciplinary Design studio tasked with designing a potential “NYC Office of Public Imagination,” graduate students Megan Durlak, Reid Henkel, Joseph Wheeler and Michael Varona proposed Public Goods NYC, an agency that would use a storefront facade to “interact with community members in a approachable way.”
The proposal utilizes creative workshops, artifacts and services to build community resiliency by facilitating productive, generative and lasting relationships between governments, civil servants and community residents, ones that enhance civic policy.
