‘Architecture is a political act, by nature. It has to do with the relationships between people and how they decide to change their conditions of living’ – Lebbeus Woods
Welcome to 2017! We are entering a new, seemingly unfamiliar political landscape and AIASF COTE wants to start a dialogue within the industry about the ideas and future we want to advocate for as a profession. How do we start defining (and implementing?) a strategy to build a positive approach which underpins and expands the web of actions and legislation that support our professional (and personal) values? The primary objective would be to make the local approach and efforts part of the social and cultural fabric. And we want to make that fabric sufficiently robust to survive challenges from those who want to dismantle the last several decades of progress accomplished in environmental and social justice issues.
To kick off an enthusiastic dialogue, Mark Christian, Hon. AIACC, the Director of Legislative Affairs for the AIA California Council, will discuss how AIACC advocacy works at the State level and how individuals might get involved to advocate for issues of professional (and personal?) concern. Bring your ideas and your passions for an evening of civil discourse on politics and the impact of legislation on our lives.
