Design Trust for Public Space is a nonprofit organization which brings together city agencies, community organizations and private sector experts to make a lasting impact – through design – on how New Yorkers live, work and play.

Our current and upcoming projects include: Trust by Design, a two-month campaign to elevate public space as a driver of a healthy, equitable, and resilient NYC; Opening the Edge, a resident-led process to design a new public space at the Lillian Wald Houses and serve as a model for NYCHA citywide; Neighborhood Commons, a project with NYC Small Business Services, providing place-based organizations (such as BID’s) and small businesses with the tools to recover as key community anchors; and finally we are planning to launch our multi-year call for proposals that will focus on the powerful impacts of public space on individual and community health to establish a generational conversation about health equity.
