Supported Event / Designs for Democracy: Damon Rich & John Harris
October 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The Academy is delighted to support this forthcoming event by The Architecture Centre in Bristol.
Drawing on lessons learned from working alongside communities, Damon Rich, partner at Hector, will share methods to bring together architecture and place-based politics.
Damon Rich is a designer and urban planner creating vivid and witty strategies to help residents exercise power within the public and private processes that shape our cities. Trained as an architect, he is committed to a democratic approach to a wide range of projects, including designs for public spaces and exhibitions.
In 2017 Damon was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship for his ground breaking work in participative urban design and advocacy.
John Harris is a journalist, writer and broadcaster whose work covers politics and popular culture. His Guardian film series ‘Anywhere but Westminster’ challenged the assumptions of centralised politics and gave a vivid insight into contemporary Britain.
This event is kindly supported by the US Embassy, the British Association of American Studies and the Landscape Institute.
Tickets for this event are between £8-10.Book Now
