FOR SOCIAL
Over recent years, a small but active micro-generation of
Harvard GSD students have worked collaboratively and progres-
sively to re-engage their design education with real communi-
ties outside the studio. Much of this work has emerged from

CHANGE AND
the student group Social Change and Activism (SoCA), a hori-
zontal organization of GSD students committed to proactive
social change. SoCA provides the infrastructure and network
of like-minded students to pursue ambitious projects that
bring quality design to local Boston communities and beyond.

ACTIVISM!
Recent design projects incubated by SoCA include a teen cen-
ter in Lowell, Massachusetts, a library installation in Bos-
ton’s Chinatown, and a community center in Capetown, South
Africa. SoCA also supports design education for Boston-area
youth through the Design Initiative for Youth program for
8th-graders and summer Project Link program for high school
students.

The work of SoCA is part of the larger project that Quilian


Riano has termed ‘critical activism’: a new wave of design-
ers that--while conscious of both modernism’s failed utopian

SEPT 17th
origins and post-war idealism--continue the search for alter-
native models to architectural practice. Today, students and
young designers believe once again that “design can change

5:00PM - 7:00PM
the world,” contending that participatory design is a tool
for shaping not only form, but also interrelated political,
social and economic systems and processes. By sharing recent
projects by SoCA and other GSD students that leverage design

LEWIS AUDITORIUM toward social equity, Dk Osseo-Asare and Quilian Riano will
offer through ‘Dispatch from GSD’ a primer on how to be a so-
cial revolutionary without burning down your design school.

[ timeline ]
The construction of the JIRR is a negotiation of
topography, political boundaries and economy. It
divides the communities and legal-political
boundaries.

The tollway not only separates the physical urban


JIRR fabric of city, it is also dilineates the sub-district
boundaries of the city. The sub-districts
(kecamatan) are adjacent to the tollway which
meant that the negotiation of the space under-
neath the tollway will either have to be a contes-
JORR tation amongst both sides or something larger -
the city itself.
