The field of architecture has alienated itself from the general public. It has become increasingly difficult to bridge the disciplinary conversations happening in academia with the concerns of citizens and their expectations from the built environment. “Designing Down the Barrier” is an opportunity to discuss how architecture projects can engage hyper-local contexts and generate bridges with communities. The event will question how Architecture engages the ‘border’ in the face of economic inequality. The conversation will be framed in the context of globalized social media technology, public engagement and ‘Do-It-Yourself’ initiatives.
