Activist Architects Plan to Reform
When thinking of architects, the automatic thought goes to designers – those who design buildings, facilities, houses, parks, etc. Do you ever think that architects are also activists in the process of reforming how architecture is taught?
This is true. Architects such as Lori Brown, a professor of the School of Architecture is one of these reformists. Brown, is the co-founder of ArchiteXX, an independent organization is working to improve how architecture is taught and practiced. Brown states in the Metropolis magazine that, “the group strongly ascribes to an intersectional framework- a belief that activists can only substantially reform society if marginalized communities work together.”
