Workshop--Avenues of Exchange: Building Equitable, Healthy, and Resilient Cities

Wednesday, March 22, 2017, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM ET

Avenues of Exchange:
Professionals, Educators and Communities Building Equitable, Healthy, and Resilient Cities

A partnership between the AIA Housing Knowledge Community & ACSA

Increasingly, architectural education and practice are addressing issues of social equity and community engagement. Using Detroit as a springboard, professionals will gather to learn about and discuss how governments, community groups, and residents are planning for more sustainable and healthy neighborhoods nationally.

Workshop participants will explore the role of community design centers, both nationally and locally, with an in-depth tour to learn how community groups in Detroit have successfully worked with design centers and professionals. Other panel sessions will focus on housing and resiliency as critical factors in improving community health and well-being. Speakers will share their best practices in teaching, and participants will discuss strategies for practice and education they can bring back to the academic studio.

Earn up to 7.5 CEU (HSW: TBD)
