The Marc Steiner Show

Design As Social Practice

breweryMarch 31, 2014 – Segment 3

Have you ever considered the social and cultural implications of architecture and design? We’ll hear a panel of experts discussing Design as a Social Practice. The panel was part of the second annual “Conversations in February” hosted by the Friends of Architecture at Morgan State University. The panel considers how designers – with their ability to look at complex problems, organize diverse communities, and get things accomplished – have the unique potential to act directly to advance social change. Marc moderated the thought-provoking panel of guests: Maurice Cox, Associate Dean for Community Engagement and Director of Tulane City Center at Tulane University School of Architecture in New Orleans; Yolande Daniels, founding partner of the New York architecture and design studio SUMO; and Gina Pollara, Executive Director of the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park in New York City.
