Design Justice Workshops emphasize the social reciprocity of learning through which faculty and students advance understandings of race and social justice with research and design. Workshops are structured to address meta-issues in global urbanism that challenge narrow conceptions of design practice. They reflect on the imperative to develop plans and paradigms for equal access to the built environment, social space, and eco-structures for communities historically left out of conventional aims and practices of architectural design. Topics vary by semester.
