The mission of Design+ city is…

a space for stories that celebrate the City’s commitment to design, through a selection of stories that feature design projects and key players who improve our urban quality of life, designers in the City involved in shaping its future.

We focus on the impact that design has on public spaces, civic architecture, and citizen's lives–from participation in the design process to the importance of visual communication. It also highlights the cross-disciplinary, collaborative nature of design projects. 

It is hosted on NYCxDESIGN and edited by AIGA and SVA’s D-Crit/Design Research program.
