Community Engaged Design

Community Engaged Design

The conversation about Good Intentions and the Aesthetics of Privilege (Loeb Lecture as group discussion 2016) continues in NextCity's "How Community-Engaged Design Is Changing Development." The article cites Project Row Houses' efforts to support neighborhood control of future development in Third Ward Houston (Rick Lowe, LF '02), and looks at the work of Toni Griffin (LF '98 and professor in practice of Urban Planning) and Deanna Van Buren (LF '13).

Van Buren summed up the argument: “Engaging communities in designing and making things together can help them realize their commonalities and create the empathy required for systemic change.”

More on this topic in The Just City Essays; Griffin is the co-editor.
