Housing as Intervention: Architecture towards Social Equity

Housing as Intervention: Architecture towards Social Equity
Symposium and Book Launch

September 24, 2018
6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
California College of the Arts
1111 8th Street
San Francisco

In the face of persistent social inequities worldwide, how can architects make a meaningful contribution? Housing’s primary position in our lives, economies and the built environment makes it a natural site of intervention in the complex fight against systemic injustices.

Bringing together housing experts from New York, Kigali, and the Bay Area, this program examines how housing projects, and the design processes behind them, can be interventions towards greater social equity. The event also marks the launch of the volume of Architectural Design (AD) of the same title, edited by Karen Kubey.
