Equity X Design: Sketching Equitable Workplaces

Joel Sanders and Seb Choe from JSA (Joel Sanders Architect) will present a talk at Center of Architecture titled “Equity X Design Mappy Hour: Sketching Equitable Workplaces”. The discussion will explore the design consequences of social justice issue, particularly as it pertains to the workplace.

JSA has been a strong advocate of inclusive design applied to the restrooms and to everyday building types like offices, museums and libraries. More efforts should be dedicated to interactive places to engage people of different ages, genders, races, religions and disabilities who have been left out of the equation.

The lecture will take place on Monday, June 18 at 6pm at Center of Architecture.
