This is one of four parallel sessions taking place from 9:50 AM - 11:05 AM on Thursday June 2.
Speakers have been asked to pre-record their presentations and we will be releasing these videos to registrants after the Symposium so that you can watch sessions you weren't able to attend.
Living and Learning through Urban Renewal
This session will examine a selection of midcentury American sites through the lens of contemporary social, political, racial, and environmental considerations. Topics include the role of an aging population in the creation of specialized residential buildings, the vicissitudes of Modernist educational buildings designed in the context of progressive politics, and the fusion of modern design and urban renewal in the development of an innovative housing community.
