The 2nd Annual Design Trust Council Event, "Quasi-Public: Paul Goldberger and Danny Meyer in Conversation" took place on Tuesday, February 26, 2008 at the New Museum.

Council members were invited for cocktails and a private viewing of the Museum's galleries, followed by a lively conversation between Pulitzer-prize winning author and architecture critic for The New Yorker, Paul Goldberger, and restaurateur, author, and civic activist Danny Meyer about how modern-day patterns of work and recreation will give form to new public and quasi-public spaces. The view of the Lower East Side from the Sky Room provided the perfect backdrop for a forum on how New York City is changing in the face of technology and development.
"Quasi-Public" picked up where the first event left off and asked these questions:

1) What will follow the current trend of international retail chains and banks replacing diverse small retailers and light industries?

2) Are there models from the hospitality, technology, or design sectors that could inspire new uses that will diversity the street wall?
