Practitioners in architecture and design are conditioned to view Black communities (and other communities of color) as monolithic and of lesser value. It is no wonder that development outcomes fail to serve the real client: the citizens that will be most impacted by the work. This course will challenge participants to interrogate their misconceptions, and provide them with guiding principles to make their work more culturally relevant. In this session, we’ll explore the concept of REPAIRations, a provocative new first step approach for restoring “swagger” to Black communities; the state from which a community’s physical, social and economic growth can occur.
