"In this upcoming Architectural Session, these experts will discuss the future of our towns, and ways to manage and control growth, development, infrastructure, traffic, and other issues," shared architect Maziar Behrooz, AIA, moderated of Architectural Sessions.

On Friday, July 17th at 6 p.m., the Parrish Art Museum will host Fix This Town!, a panel discussion featuring Harvard University's Director of the Urban Design Degree Program Felipe Correa and Deputy Presiding Officer for the Suffolk County Legislator, and County Legislator Jay Schneiderman. The lecture will take a look at questions like "What will the East End look like in 10, 20 or 50 years? and "How will we balance population growth while improving and maintaining the region's quality of life?"

"It is a rare opportunity to have the Director of the Urban Design Program at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design, Felipe Correa, and our county legislator, Jay Schneiderman, in one room discussing the potentials and pitfalls of growth and development on the East End," noted Behrooz.

Correa has vast knowledge about urban planning and architecture, having worked on several planning initiatives globally, including a retrofitting of Quito's Historic Core (Ecuador), which launched in 2012. Schneiderman will add his expertise as a representative of the local community, having held positions in public service on the East End since 1991. The talk will cover what the East End could look like in the future, as well as if that's what the community desires, and if not, what can be done to change that outcome.

"Architectural Sessions is the only ongoing conversation series on art and architecture on the East End, and is a fitting forum for a focused discussion about managing the area's inevitable growth," said Andrea Grover, Century Arts Foundation Curator of Special Projects at the Parrish.

A short Q&A will follow the presentation, during which attendees will be invited to speak with both Correa and Schneiderman about the topics and issues raised.

Fix This Town! is the sixth installment of the ongoing conversation series Architectural Sessions, presented by the Parrish with the support of AIA Peconic. Tickets are $10, but free for members, children, and students.

Parrish Art Museum is located at 279 Montauk Highway in Water Mill. For more information, call 631-283-2118 or visit parrishart.org.
