Society is riddled with injustice and the built environment is not immune; Architects have a responsibility to actively play a role in making a more just society that empower communities and engages them through perpetuating agency. These spaces of expression promote democratized moments of cultural celebration, protest, community engagement, and connection. Demanding and creating public spaces for such expression is a step in the direction of a just built environment focused on autonomy, appropriation, and activation.
