The second Research Forum in the series will focus on "Community Redevelopment in the Global South."
Communities in the Global South face unique challenges to managing growth, redevelopment, and economic restructuring.
Faculty in the College of Design are working with residents of these communities to strengthen climate change resilience, design and build community centers, strengthen economic development, and house the urban poor.
This forum will focus on work being conducted in India, Africa, and Latin America (with a focus on Puerto Rico), presenting case examples of community-based interventions and exploring the unique opportunities and challenges of international work.
Forum participants are:
- Michael Elliott, Associate Professor, Schools of City and Regional Planning and of Public Policy
- Daniel Baerlecken, Associate Professor, School of Architecture
- Alberto Fuentes, Assistant Professor, Schools of City and Regional Planning and of International Affairs
- Catherine Ross, Professor, School of City and Regional Planning; Director, Center for Quality Growth and Regional Development.
The College of Design Research forums are intended to allow the College community and our friends across the campus to experience the design- and technology-focused research at Georgia Tech. From music technology to product design; from assistive technology to healthcare; from architecture to city planning, we explore the many ways technology can solve critical problems for the way we live.
The forum will take place November 8, from 11 a.m. until noon in the Caddell Flex Space.
