MAS was a lead partner in the Rebuild by Design competition, alongside the Van Alen Institute, the Regional Plan Association and NYU’s Institute for Public Knowledge. As the winning projects move into implementation, MAS will continue to support Rebuild by Design and the communities involved through our Community Resilience Trainings and network building activities.

While the implementation of the funded projects will be critical to improving our region’s resilience, the competition’s unique format produced research, design opportunities, and thoughtful project ideas that could be a springboard for future work.

Congratulations again to the winners. We look forward to working with them, and other stakeholders, on improving resiliency in New York City through an ongoing, inclusive dialogue.
