CCA Discussion Panel: The Architecture Lobby

Free and open to the public

Please join us for a panel discussion with Neeraj Bhatia, Peggy Deamer, Dean of Architecture Jonathan Massey, Eric Rogers, and Rosa Sheng to examine both the content and the form of change in the architectural profession.  The Architecture Lobby is an organization of architectural workers that advocates for the value of architecture in the general public and for architectural work within the discipline.

  • Why is it important to recognize that you — an architecture student, an emerging architect, a firm owner — are a worker?
  • Why should there be an activist organization to make this demand?

Members of the Architecture Lobby will present the organization’s work to induce a debate on these controversial questions.

UPDATE 8/6/2016:  Big thanks to Neeraj, Jonathan, Eric and Rosa for a great conversation and another big thank you to CCA for being really welcoming and open to discussions on these important issues in architecture.  Check out the photos below of the event!

    From the Ground Up: Building Solidarity in Somerville through Aspirational Design

    ALL ARCHITECTURE IS POLITICAL. ​ALL POLITICS ARE LOCAL. ​COMMUNITY POWER IS BUILT, NOT GIVEN. ​What does it mean to build community in a broken world? As architects working in the public sphere, we are cast into a predatory system that divides people. Networks of capital, privatization, inequity, gentrification, and displacement all convene to fracture human […]
