BRDI Presents: Challenging Assumptions in Architecture and Housing with Susanne Schindler
Susanne Schindler is an architect and historian focused on the intersection of policy and design in housing. Join us as Schindler explores ways in which design and architecture inform planning practices and can be used to address contemporary challenges including housing affordability and urban governance. Schindler argues that we need to understand how we got here if we want to change where we’re going.
Susanne Schindler currently is a visiting lecturer at MIT’s School of Architecture and Planning. She completed a PhD on housing, architecture, and inequality in New York City in the late 1960s and writes regularly for a range of publications, including e-flux, Perspecta, and Planning Perspectives. Since 2015, she has been the housing columnist for Urban Omnibus.
Doors open at 10:30 am with coffee hosted by BRDI.
