[Virtual] Tell It Like It Is
March 9 @ 6:30 PM PST
Conversations Between the Global North and South on Design and Community Life in Human Settlements
Join a conversation between filmmakers and practitioners whose work and personal histories straddle the worlds of the Global North and South. We will explore questions of formality and informality of design and their impacts on community life, and vice versa, in human settlements. The evening will include a screening of short international documentary films that offer a glimpse of an open air market in Addis Ababa, a well organized squat of an abandoned office tower in Caracas, and Rwandan architects reflecting on their role in rebuilding their nation. The screening will be followed by a discussion moderated by University of San Francisco Professor of Architecture and Urban Studies, Tanu Sankalia. This program is also an opportunity to discuss the opportunities and challenges of understanding places through mediated experiences like film screenings.
