Expanding Architecture: Design as Activism 07.21.15
Recently released in its third printing, Expanding Architecture: Design as Activism is co-edited by Bizios Architect’s own Katie Wakeford. Hope you’ll check it out!
From publisher Metropolis Books:
“Expanding Architecture presents a new generation of creative design carried out in the service of the greater public and the greater good. Questioning how design can improve daily lives, editors Bryan Bell and Katie Wakeford map an emerging geography of architectural activism–or “public-interest architecture”–that might function akin to public-interest law or medicine by expanding architecture’s all too often elite client base. With 30 essays by practicing architects and designers, urban and community planners, historians, landscape architects, environmental designers and members of other fields, this volume presents recent work from around the world that illustrates the ways in which design can address issues of social justice.”
