Event description

Description

Eclectic thinking on architecture and capital is sorely needed as we face concurrent challenges of structural social inequities, economic and geographic segregation in urban areas, and a dearth of design policies aimed at ensuring that high-quality urban design and civic space is afforded to entire communities. Egalitarianism, democracy and capital(ism)and the ideologies that undergird themare constituent components of a rethinking of the pedagogies and practices of design professionals and affiliated actors. The symposium will afford the school an interdisciplinary approach to developing new practices and pedagogies to infuse the ongoing discourse of democracy and capital into our teaching and research.

The program will take place from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. at Town & Gown on the USC campus. Registration will begin at 8:00 AM. Breakfast and lunch will be served.
