Glen Cummings on design in the public realm

Designer Glen Cummings, founding partner of the New York studio MTWTF, will present a cross section of projects that engage, and aim to shape, the public realm through signage, maps, publications, exhibitions and digital media.

“For designers each public project is a chance to learn how some part of a complex “city machine” works, and perhaps an opportunity to give things a little push, or kick, in a good direction.”

Project clients will include: The City of Newark, NJ; Brookings Institution; Participatory Budgeting Project; Design Trust for Public Space; Brooklyn Public Library; The State of New York; Center for Urban Pedagogy; Humanities Action Lab; Columbia University in the City of New York.
