How do we recognize the multiple histories, cultural traditions, identities, and populations that have shaped landscapes of the past and could construct landscapes of the future? This panel will explore the ways in which representation and equity can creatively inform design processes and be intentional outcomes of our work.

Please complete a brief evaluation of this Online Learning presentation.

Learning Objectives:
  • Learn about cultural traditions from US and global cities, how they may inform design processes, and how we as designers have an ethical obligation to cultivate and honors these traditions.
  • Cultivate an understanding of how to work with people and cultural resources already on the ground as a first act of exploring the design possibilities of unique cultures and identities.
  • Learn about the ways designers and researchers often step outside a given brief to re-frame project agendas around issues of culture and identity.
  • Understand how representation, inclusion, and belonging can manifest themselves in widely varying ways through both a project design process and a project’s physical expression.
