Abstract

By incorporating values of inclusivity, social justice, and equity, public interest design inserts a critical lens into contemporary architectural thinking, practice, and pedagogy. Its emphasis on inclusive process and action over product creates a praxis that draws on trans-disciplinary knowledge to create change. Theories that underlie this praxis are the social production of space, the everyday, and the relational; key practices are activism, participation, and material agency. In combination, these approaches critically reframe the roles of architects and architecture in engaging current issues and provide relevant scaffolding for contemporary practice and pedagogy.
