National Building Museum

Equity in the Built Environment: Black Women Build: Baltimore

Wednesday, January 13, 2016
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

ASID Equity PicDesigning for social justice puts people and communities first. The beauty of social justice projects is seen in the resulting impact and reflection of the communities they serve. Hear from Nina Briggs, lecturer, Cal Poly Pomona, co-president, L.A. Forum for Architecture & Urban Design; Erin Christensen Ishizaki, partner, Mithun; and Angelita Scott, Ph.D., Allied ASID, director, Community Concept Lead - Standard Development Team, International WELL Building Institute, who have led projects at a variety of scales, from the built environment to the development of curricula, and see how this work can bring about positive mental, physical, and social outcomes for people and communities. Conversely, find out how the design team is impacted by the lessons learned from the people they serve in these projects. 

This program continues the National Building Museum's Equity in the Built Environment series of conversations that focus on how buildings, landscapes, interiors, and streets can be the cause of—and, more important, the cure for—social and racial disparities.
