Activist Architecture overseas
After a bit of a hiatus, we’re looking to gear this blog back up……
The big news over the summer is that I presented a paper about the Activist Architecture studio at the 2012 ACSA International Conference in Barcelona, Spain. The paper, entitled “Bringing it all Back Home: Design Aid in our own Back Yard”, was part of the session ‘Yoru Studio Assignment is to Change the World’. Fellow presenters in this session came from Iowa State University and Cape Peninsula University of Technology in South Africa. The session was well attended, and featured spirited discussion. The work of our studio was brought to the attention of a number of kindred spirits from universities across the globe.
In the next few weeks, I’ll resume posting profiles of students projects, featuring many from the spring 2012 semester. Stay tuned. Also, feel free to visit the studio’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/activistarchltu
