Mark-Making and Place-Keeping:
Erasure, Emergence, and Imagination

What are we designing, building, and maintaining? Where, why, how, and for whom? This studio charges designers to develop an anti-racist and decolonial approach for contributing to communities, cities, and environments that have been marked by erasure and neglect. We seek the liberation of people and stewardship of the environment by seeking an ethics of care in our fields of practice. For fourteen weeks, we will use our time and imagination together to generate conversations, questions, ideas, images, and projects to grow our capacity and power as architects and designers to make positive change.
