Meeting Time: 6:00PM - 8:40PM
This seminar will provide an overview of the emerging architectural, development, and art-based practices that go beyond the traditional architect-patron framework, in order to better address the problems of weak market cities and underserved urban areas. We will look at how some practitioners are developing new approaches in identifying needs, cultivating public support, and finding sources of funding to pursue and complete projects that challenge mainstream approaches.
In addition to focused readings and discussion sessions, the students will develop and present case studies and a brief term paper. The seminar will feature several presentations from practitioners in Buffalo area.
