Equity in Design: Architecture and Spatial Justice
Presented by: Paul D. Bauknight Jr. is the Founder and President of the Center for Transformative Urban Design
AIA/CES Learning Units: 1.0 Hours
As Edward Soja writes, "space is socially produced and can therefore be socially changed." This webinar explores the concept of Spatial Justice and discusses how the creation of space as both a physical and social construct is fundamental to the practice of architecture.
Paul D. Bauknight Jr., Founder and President of the Center for Transformative Urban Design, discusses how the spaces we inhabit can have negative as well as positive consequences and why confronting social and economic inequality in our cities is a role for architects and architecture. Paul explores how, through new structures, strategies and expanded models of practice, architects play an essential role in creating just and equitable cities.
