Sylvia Harris Award 2014
We Build the ___________ City

Civic construction work—generally maligned while in progress, and taken for granted once finished—rarely receives the recognition it deserves for providing the necessary foundation for a thriving city. In 2013, the New York City Department of Design and Construction participated in the New Museum’s Ideas City Festival, and wanted to communicate the benefits of its work directly to the public. The DDC’s Office of Creative Services conceived of a “Civic Values Walking Tour” of a variety of DDC projects within the immediate vicinity of the New Museum.
