The Master of Urban Design program in the School of Architecture joins with the UNC Greensboro Department of Interior Architecture and Center for Community-Engaged Design to present a symposium that explores the complex issues of affordable housing and neighborhood erasure.
Held in conjunction with the UNCG Novem Mason Symposium on Community-Engaged Design, the public symposium on Friday, March 31, follows a full day of student workshops in local communities in Greensboro and Charlotte. Reports from their experiences, panel discussions, and a keynote lecture will address issues of housing access, neighborhood history, and urban development using community-engaged design methods that value local knowledge of place and history equally with professional expertise.
