Rebel Architecture: How to Dismantle Power Through Design

In our cities today, the built environment appears simultaneously immutable and precarious—immutable because it replicates entrenched power structures and precarious because, no matter one's claim on space, destruction, and displacement seem inevitable Together, we will think through the ways exclusion is inscribed onto urban spaces through planning, design, and architecture. We will demonstrate ways we can—and do—counteract these prescribed meanings through alternate, collective, and collaborative forms, as well as through active resistance. Rebel Architecture is a moderated panel discussion; audience members are encouraged to bring questions, to take notes, and make their own designs during or after the talk. Discussants include Germane Barnes (Designer-in-residence for the Opa Locka Community Development Corporation, Senior Lecturer in the School of Architecture at the University of Miami); Nandini Bagchee (Bernard & Anne Spitzer School of Architecture at The City College of New York); and Nicholas Korody (Editor-in-chief of Ed Magazine, a publication of Archinect, and co-founder, with Joanna Kloppenburg of Adjustments Agency); moderated by Louise Harpman (Associate Professor at NYU Gallatin, founder and principal of Louise Harpman__PROJECTS).

Rebel Architecture is presented as a part of ARCHTOBER 2018.
