Transscalarities: Arenas of Design

Thu, Jul 23, 2020

MSAAD Program Director Andrés Jaque hosts an introductory session for the program’s Transscalarities course. Operating as a cauldron of collective research and critical discussion, Transscalarities explores the way architectural design operates politically, societally, and environmentally by unfolding discontinuous interconnections across scales. In this first session, Professor Jaque and the MSAAD class will respond to readings by Langdon Winner, Kimberle Crenshaw, and Bruno Latour, and will discuss the course’s main lines of inquiry: 1. Environmental Engagement, 2. Racial Justice, 3. Decolonizing Design, 4. From Technodeterminism to the Techno-social, 5. Materiality as Transterritorial, 6. From Exploitation to Mutual Care, and 7. Interspecies Diplomacy.

Summer workshops and programs are open to the GSAPP Community. Students and faculty can access a direct link to this program in the most recent GSAPP Newsletter or by contacting the GSAPP Events Office. Organized by Columbia GSAPP.
