Emerging Voices Reports: Peterson Rich Office

2020 Emerging Voices winner Peterson Rich Office presents its work.

May 7, 2020

Emerging Voices Reports is a new digital series created in lieu of live lectures for the 2020 Emerging Voices program. From slideshow presentations to project walk-throughs, six of this year’s eight winners produced original videos to share their work after live events were canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The first two lectures were presented as planned prior to the mid-March shutdown in New York.

In this video, Miriam Peterson and Nathan Rich use a scale model to present strategies to improve and expand New York City’s Housing Authority (NYCHA) public housing.
