The First 100 Days: Day 64 - Dismantling

Fri, Mar 24, 2017    1pm

Columbia GSAPP faculty and students gather to discuss, organize, and plan for changes to come during the Trump administration. The series continues with special guests throughout the semester.

The policies of the Trump administration will influence how architects, planners, and designers can plan for and build sustainable and functional housing and infrastructure. A number of existing regulations and programs, from funding for the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to the Obama administration’s Affirmatively Further Fair Housing (AFFH) rule, are currently at risk.

On March 24th, GSAPP faculty and students reflect on the range of ways that the Trump administration could dismantle the administrative state and impose or rescind policies that limit progressive contributions to infrastructure and the built environment. By contextualizing what is at risk of being undone, the panelists also consider potential avenues for resistance through emphasizing what is worth protecting in the new administration.
