OWA EVENT: Book Talk with Christie Coffin


Come join us for a book talk with our very own member, and author Christie Coffin, as she discusses her latest book: Making Places for People: 12 Questions Every Designer Should Ask

RSVP Here

Location: Laurel Bookstore
1423 Broadway, Oakland, CA 94612
Date: June 21st
Time: 7pm

Refreshments and snacks will be provided. The book will be available for purchase at the event!


Making Places for People explores twelve social questions in environmental design. Authors Christie Johnson Coffin and Jenny Young bring perspectives from practice and teaching to challenge assumptions about how places meet human needs. The book reveals deeper complexities in addressing basic questions, such as: What is the story of this place? What logic orders it? How big is it? How Sustainable is it? Providing an overview of a growing body of knowledge about people and places, Making Places for People stimulates curiosity and further discussion.

Christie Johnson Coffin practices architecture in the Western Unites States and internationally in Taiwan, India, and Nicaragua, with a focus on social design for health-care and research laboratory buildings. She is also author of Changing Hospital Environments for Children.

Jenny Young teaches design and human factors in design. Her research on small town development focuses on the roles public buildings play in town stability and vitality. Her architectural practice includes consulting on schools, libraries, clinics, and designing residential projects.
