ReImagining the City as a Commons: A Guided Discussion
Please join fellow local alumni to watch a recent lecture by noted GSD Professor and Urban Law practitioner Sheila Foster followed by a guided discussion by our own Jason Haun AMDP'20.
Noted GSD Professor and Urban Law practitioner Sheila Foster presents a case for why endemic vacant urban land and buildings should be considered a “commons” capable of meeting the social and economic needs of the City. She believes these areas to be the space between public and private, market, and state, where a set of novel solutions to enduring inequities can be offered. Presented by the Architecture and Design SIG as well as the Graduate School of Design, we will listen to Professor Foster's lecture and be guided in a discussion afterward by our own Jason Haun AMDP'20.
This event is not just for our members with a design background. It is meant for anyone with an interest in the future of cities and creative solutions for our communities.
Since many of us won't be traveling as perhaps we might usually during Thanksgiving week, we hope this will be an opportunity to relax, perhaps grab a drink, and join others in your Harvard community for an engaging and thought-provoking discussion.
