MITArchA will kick off its presence in New York with a talk by Christine Gaspar, MArch/MCP '04, Executive Director of the Center for Urban Pedagogy. She will speak to local alumni on November 3 about the work of her organization, which leverages the power of art and design to help citizens understand the policy and planning issues that impact their communities.

Board members Melissa Marsh, M.Arch '04, and Matthew Chua, M.Arch '08, will lead MITArchA's programs in New York in conjunction with Kenneth Namkung, M.Arch '03 who will coordinate between MITArchA and the MIT Club of New York. Both groups will work to engage the sizable community of Course IV alumni in the area, many of whom work in leadership roles in the design industry.
