- What: Architect’s Role in the Civic Conversation for Design Justice.
Design justice, design impact. In the civic realm, we design not only for the communities we serve but the communities we have yet to imagine. We are in a unique moment in history where design justice has the opportunity to counteract the racial injustices design can perpetuate. As we reflect on the communities we serve and the impact we have, this panel will pose the question: What is the role of the architect in the civic conversation of design justice? With the facilitator and panelists setting the tone of the discussion, break out groups will have the opportunity to discuss what they heard and how they can apply those findings in their own life, within their firms and work culture and in the design decisions, they propose in the communities they touch and the projects they create.
- Where: AIA Seattle Diversity Roundtable, NOMA NW Chapter
- When: Saturday, August 15 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM PST
