Series Theme -- Architectures of Care: In a world riven by inequality and indifference, care-work has become essential and highly visible in its capacity to create more sustainable worlds. How can architecture support and nurture care work and the values of cooperation and commoning that go with the recognition of care as an essential form of labor? Convened by Spitzer faculty Cesare Birignani and Vyjayanthi Rao, “Architectures of Care” explores the notion of care and the ways in which architecture might contribute to repairing built environments and social fabrics.
Sciame Lecture Series with additional funding provided by the Bernard & Anne Spitzer School of Architecture Fund.
