Kaz Sakamoto is a student in our class and he created the following infographic to explain the process our class will use to create the Think Piece. Kaz is a Master of Science in Urban Planning candidate at Columbia’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation (GSAPP). One of his interests is where public participation and technology intersect. He currently works for the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYC EDC) which is the City’s official economic development corporation; some of their successful projects include the Highline, Coney Island, East River Ferry service, and the upcoming Cornell+Technion campus on Roosevelt Island. He works in the asset management and GIS departments where he has been working on analyzing the economic impact of College Point Corporate Park in Queens and digitizing project data for the EDC. In his free time he likes to ride trains, explore the city, and makes maps… usually in that order.
