Toward an Urban Ethics
a lecture by David Adjaye, founder of Adjaye Associates, followed by a conversation with Thelma Golden, Director and Chief Curator of The Studio Museum in Harlem and Amale Andraos, Dean of Columbia GSAPP.
David Adjaye, the award-winning architect and lead designer of the National Museum of African American History and Culture will give a lecture about how art, architecture and design can promote more ethically-minded cities followed by discussion. With reflections on Adjaye’s own work, including the forthcoming new facility at the Studio Museum, they will speak about how socially-minded architecture in urban centers can draw together and lift up communities, encourage exchange, and prompt recognition of underheard voices. This conversation will explore how architecture can promote inclusive, dignified outcomes, especially for cities’ most vulnerable communities.
