Abstract

In this symposium we will examine ways in which designers working with community-based issues can and should look beyond spatial and physical conditions to generate strategies for the future. The underlying premise of this session is that spatial design is an instrumental practice that can shape and potentially transform reality. To do so effectively, however, requires not only dealing with instrumental tools such as function and materiality but also understanding the broader context of social, economic, and political relationships over time.
