This year's Intersections symposium will explore Mobility, Equity, and the Built Environment, as a means of physical and representational participation. Panels, presentations and site tours will explore the full range of what it means for the built environment to be accessible and inclusive - physically, economically, environmentally, and beyond. This is an invitation to look at how mobility operates in design, and how it can become a force in dismantling structural social inequities.
Day one of the symposium will kick off with a keynote panel, 3 presentations, Women in Design Award of Excellence Ceremony and Happy Hour. All events will be in person at the BSA Space, recordings of the presentations will be available after the event. Day two will consist of two site visits, hosted in collaboration with BSLA’s Inside/Out - 10am in Boston for A walk Audit with the Allston Brighton Health Collaborative and at 1pm in Cambridge for a tour of the Louis A. DePasquale Universal Design Playground at Danehy Park. Registration is requested.
