On May 21, 2024, Principal Emily Gosack co-organized a panel, “Designing for Equity: New Parks Prioritize the Community,” that focused on two parks at the forefront of public park design: India Basin in South SF and Oakland’s new Mosswood Park. Moderated by journalist Lydia Lee, the panel highlighted innovative ways of engaging the community in the design process.
