TenBerke joins New York: City Designed Advisory Committee

March 28, 2024

TenBerke has joined the Advisory Committee for New York: City Designed, a new program co-led by the Design Trust for Public Space and Macaulay Honors College at CUNY, New York: City Designed seeks to introduce first generation students, students of color, immigrants, and students from other historically marginalized groups to opportunities in the design sectors and have real-world experience to prepare them for these careers. The year-long program will include a mixture of experiential learning, workshop-based problem-solving, lectures, site visits, and internship placements equipping young leaders to take power as NYC residents and jump-start their professional development.

“The New York: City Designed program aims to grow the pipeline of students with underrepresented backgrounds in the planning, design, and preservation fields. We believe that diversity is the wellspring of excellence. At TenBerke, we maintain a sustained ethic of inclusion: from the places we design to underpin more sustainable communities, to our own community of practice. Expanding on this core ethic, we are thrilled to support this program, to promote diversity in the creation of the built environment.”
– Noah Biklen, Senior Principal
