(LA) Architecture that's Built to Heal: Promoting justice, ecology and human dignity

A distinguished panel, moderated by ‎Jennifer Hrabchak Molinsky, senior research associate of the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University, will discuss the principles behind using architecture and landscape architecture as methods to promote justice, ecology and human dignity, and the lessons this may hold for Boston. Learn from an environmental gerontologist, an architect and a landscape architect about their practices as well as their approaches to design and the built environment. Travel with our panelists from East Africa to Japan and New York, and discover their work in socially conscious architecture and design. The panel will include Alexis Landes, principal at Scape, NY, Patricia Gruits, director at MassDesign Group, and 

Loeb Fellow 2017 Emi Kiyota, founder of Ibasho Café.
