Summary

#HipHopArch

Michael Ford, "The Hip Hop Architect," Design Justice advocate Bryan Lee Jr. and Forbes Media Editor Zack O’Malley Greenburg discuss the cultural and colloquial implications of architecture in the built environment through the lens of Hip Hop Culture and Design Justice. Focusing on the intersection of theory and practice, they will explore hip hop as a revolutionary approach to understanding, conceiving, and generating architecture for a just city. Showing these processes in action, Ford will share the unique, cross disciplinary design process, Hip Hop Architecture, used during his design of The Universal Hip Hop Museum and Lee will share instances of design justice via his pavilions located in New Orleans. Don't miss this inspiring, provocative conversation with designers who are bridging the divide between communities traditionally underserved by the architecture and design fields.
