2021 USC Architecture Research Symposium Presentation Gallery

On April 15, 2021, the second annual USC School of Architecture (USCA) Research Symposium provided an opportunity for architects, artists, community organizers, landscape architects, designers, technologists, planners, historians, and critics to share innovative solutions that advance racial justice, equity, diversity, and wellness in the built environment.

THEME: Designing for Social Justice

Designing for Social Justice recognizes design as a medium for meaningful social change by addressing structural inequalities through an equitable distribution of space and resources. Design justice in architecture challenges social inequalities by a radical rethinking of the design process and encourages architects to use the power of design to imagine alternatives for a more equitable and humane living.
