Rethinking Practice: Climate, Equity, Labor
Rethinking Practice: Climate, Equity, Labor is a one-day conference organized by Alessandro Orsini, Adjunct Assistant Professor at Columbia GSAPP. The symposium brings together practitioners, professors, community leaders, and students to support the idea that the architect’s community sits in society like others, opposing the insular position that architecture has held for a long time.
This conference is free and open to the public.
