Ms. Anne Guiney Executive Director, Institute for Urban Design
Anne Guiney is the Executive Director of the Institute for Urban Design, where she developed the
innovative crowd sourced design project “By the City / For the City.” This effort connected New Yorkers and their intimate knowledge of their neighborhoods with the problem-solving and imaginative abilities of architects and urban designers, and resulted in the book By the City / For the City: An Atlas of Possibility for the Future of New York. Prior to this, she was the editor of the New York edition of The Architect’s Newspaper, and was part of the original team that launched the newspaper in 2003. Ms. Guiney has also served as an editor at Architecture magazine and Metropolis, and has written widely on architecture and design for other publications, including Architect, ID, and Details.
