This studio focused on how preservation can serve as a tool to promote social inclusion and belonging within the Columbia community (encompassing both the Morningside and Manhattanville campuses and surrounding neighborhoods), and to build bridges across differences . To embark on this inquiry, faculty challenged students to critically explore the following questions:
- How are diverse narratives and publics represented in the Columbia community?
- How does the historic built environment reinforce some narratives versus others, and reflect some publics versus others, and what are the implications of these differences?
- How can the preservation enterprise intervene, so as to instrumentalize heritage toward greater social inclusion?
