Dattner Architects is pleased to share that Dana Moore AIA has been accepted into this year’s Class of Forefront Fellows. The Urban Design Forum (UDF)’s Forefront Fellowship is an interdisciplinary cohort of designers, policymakers, artists, and activists working to reimagine how the city shapes life for its growing population. The 2022 cohort of Forefront Fellows is addressing waste management in the city and rewriting how New York City can pick up after itself in more sustainable, equitable, and efficient ways.
“I believe waste management is the most critical piece of the urban puzzle, and I think every New Yorker deserves infrastructure that meets their needs with grace. Meeting the waste haulers, building supers, and even volunteers who make this essential service possible is an amazing experience that I will take with me in my design career. Our cohort is already forming fast ties, and I look forward to the solutions we will envision as a team. More than ever, I am reminded that essential services are made up of essential persons—this fellowship is a singular opportunity for me to learn from and design for those voices.”—Dana Moore AIA
