UPDATE: We got a nice write-up in the Yale Daily News, check it out: Urban Planning Democratized.
Very excited to host James Rojas in New Haven on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. I first learned about Mr. Rojas through his essay “The Enacted Environment: Examining the Streets and Yards of East Los Angeles” in a collection co-edited by my advisor at Berkeley, Paul Groth. He also published a great piece with John Chase – another inspiring writer on vernacular architecture and cultural landscapes – called “The Painted Sign Pictures of Latino Los Angeles” in Everyday Urbanism. At Yale, James with take participants through a model-making exercise that is intended to spur conversations about urban futures. You can come, too, just let me know.
