LOS ANGELES (Nov. 28, 2018) — University of Southern California School of Architecture, in partnership with PIN-UP Magazine, will host A Sense of Place: The African American Home at the Intersection of Art, Design, and Culture, a lively discussion about the overlooked relationship between American history and home as it relates to race, class, and comfort, at Design Miami/. The event, happening Friday, Dec. 7 at 11 a.m., is open to all Design Miami/ attendees and no registration is required.


Moderated by Tiana Webb Evans, founder and managing director, ESP PR/YARD Concept, the panel will feature a diverse lineup of distinguished participants including:


  • Introduction: Felix Burrichter, editor and creative director of PIN-UP Magazine
  • Panelist: Milton S. F. Curry, dean of USC Architecture
  • Panelist: Asad Syrkett, deputy editor of Curbed
  • Panelist: Naima J. Keith, deputy director and chief curator of California African American Museum


“With cities worldwide growing dramatically, it is now more critical than ever for architects and designers to collaborate on understanding and finding a solution to the global housing crisis,” stated USC Architecture’s Dean Curry. “That is why USC Architecture is honored to host this special Design Miami/ panel on American history and home examining the abstract juxtaposition between the two. Our goal with this conversation is to spark new ideas for seamlessly organizing cities that will not only reflect the needs of its growing inhabitants but also address the rapidly advancing issues of affordability, sustainability and diversity.”
