This year’s Spring Design Lecture Series theme is Empowerment, Access, Co-Creation, Ethics. At the core of many of our social challenges is an asymmetrical power dynamic. This series explores the role of power in design and what it looks like for designers to facilitate its redistribution.

19 April 2018: Co-Creation

Hector is an urban design, planning & civic arts studio whose work shows how social relations and conflicts materialize through the design process. Hector partner Damon Rich was awarded a 2017 MacArthur Fellowship, recognizing him as “a designer and urban planner creating vivid and witty strategies to help residents exercise power within the public and private processes that shape our cities.”
