MDes Critical Conservation Lecture: Lior Strahilevitz, “Exclusionary Amenities and Exclusionary Vibes”

A lecture/workshop/course—04479: Power & Place: Culture and Conflict in the Built Environment—is being offered in Spring 2016 as part of the MDes Critical Conservation program at the Graduate School of Design to study and analyze the processes and expressions of power in the built North American environment. The goal is to foster an understanding of urban ethics and an awareness of the political uses of history and identity in North America, issues that are applicable to different parts of the built world. A series of conversations with noted scholars will support the inquiry of group research projects examining three cities where the history of cultural conflict and the spatial patterns of exclusion aimed expressed in racial, ethnic, economic and religious frames have left an indelible imprint on the character of the city.
