YBCA 10 Podcast: Deanna Van Buren
February 11 - March 10
In the latest episode, Designing Justice + Designing Spaces co-founder and executive director Deanna Van Buren shares her thoughts on public architecture as restorative justice work, advocating community equity investment models, and un-building structural inequities around the world.
“I think there’s been great impact in at least having people think that we can be, as architects, we can be folks who address social change rather than propping up systems of oppressions, which is what we’ve been doing since the dawn of time, even to change systems like mass incarceration.” – Deanna Van Buren, one of only 500 licensed Black female architects in the United States.
