BSA: Anti-racist Design: Reimagining the Future of Multi-family Housing

January 20 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

What does it mean to be anti-racist and more specifically, what does it mean to practice anti-racist design? To better understand today’s barriers to creating affordable and equitable multi-family housing, we must first examine the legacies of racism that are deeply entrenched in decades and centuries old housing processes.

Anti-racist Design: Reimagining the Future of Multi-Family Housing marks the second conversation in the Future-Decker Conversation Series, where educators, designers, residents, and advocates will discuss the role design can play in resisting or even perpetuating racism in the field of housing, by first taking a look at the infamous New England building type, the triple-decker.

The triple-decker and its history provide us with the chance to further discuss the ripple effects and consequences of decades-long racist housing policies to then collaboratively reimagine the future of multi-family housing.

Come prepared to share your stories, ask questions, and participate in what will be a engaging conversation about anti-racist design.
