Race, Space and Architecture: Reflections on a Curriculum
A lecture by Suzi Hall, Huda Tayob, and Thandi Loewenson with a response by Emanuel Admassu, Assistant Professor and leader of the Fall Urban Design Studio at Columbia GSAPP.
Race, Space & Architecture is an open-access curriculum shared of many voices which engages with three questions: What are the spatial contours of capitalism that produce racial hierarchy and injustice? What are the inventive repertoires of refusal, resistance, and re-making that are neither reduced to nor exhausted by racial capitalism and how are they specialized? How is ‘race’ configured differently across space, and how can a more expansive understanding of entangled world space broaden our imagination for teaching and learning?
Fall 2021 public programming will be a virtual/in-person hybrid. Columbia affiliates holding a green pass may attend in-person events, while the general public may attend via Zoom Webinar. All events will be recorded and available for later viewing unless otherwise noted.
