Housing as Intervention: Launch reception and book signing
Celebrate the release of Housing as Intervention: Architecture towards Social Equity.
September 6, 2018
Join us to celebrate the launch of Housing as Intervention: Architecture towards Social Equity, edited by Karen Kubey.
This 17-essay volume of Architectural Design (AD) examines how housing projects around the world, and the design processes behind them, might be interventions towards greater social equity. Housing’s primary position in our lives, economies, and the built environment makes it a natural site of intervention in the complex fight against systemic injustices. In the face of persistent social inequities worldwide, how can architects make a meaningful contribution?
