A series of conversations including students, faculty, and invited guests will consider design at the scale of the building, neighborhood, city, region, and globe.Organized by the Harvard GSD African American Student Union with support from the Joint Center for Housing Studies, Hutchins Center for African and African American Research, Loeb Fellowship at Harvard GSD, the Dean's Diversity Initiative at Harvard GSD, and H-OAPAdditional information and complete conference schedule available here.
