Ny Taxi forum

A few months back I posted on the redesign of New York City's taxi system in celebration of the centennial. The project is being managed through the Design Trust for Public Space, a great organization.

So, tomorrow - Thursday, January 18th at 6:30 pm - the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum will host a panel discussion entitled Taxi 07: Transforming an Icon. Participating designers from Antenna Design, Birsel + Seck, Smart Design and Weisz + Yoes will discuss their approach to the task of improving a globally recognized icon.

Cooper-Hewitt members and students with valid ID: $5; non- members: $10

Registration required.
