This year, the College of Architecture's Hyde Lecture series will feature speakers from across disciplines that are united under the common theme of “Building Justice- Design and Planning for a Just Society.”
Our professions have long excluded people of color and under-served groups in both process and outcomes. To confront it, the 20-21 Hyde Lecture Series brings lecturers who believe that design and planning should be explicitly engaged with fostering a just society. Doing so is an act of hope requiring, not only, an awareness of true inequity, but also a compulsion to refute it in its many forms.
The College’s Hyde Lecture Series is a long-standing, endowed public program. Each year the College hosts compelling speakers in the fields of architecture, interior design, landscape architecture and planning that enrich the ongoing dialog around agendas which are paramount to the design disciplines and our graduates.
