Race & Architecture: Housing and the Role of the Designer

While design alone will not solve housing affordability, wealth disparities and gentrification issues, we also cannot sit back and wait for others to act. Architects must consider not only who they are designing for, but who they are designing with.

Join us for a conversation with architects who have shifted their practice to be more intentional in their design and values. Our panelists will discuss how to identify the role of the architect in perpetuating housing inequalities or resisting in them.
