Join us in the gallery for an engaging talk in collaboration with Archtoberfest.
Speakers, Matthew Higgins, School of Art & Design, SDSU, Dr. Megan Welsh, School of Public Affairs, SDSU and
Dr. Mounah Abdel-Samad, School of Public Affairs, SDSU will share thoughts on how architecture, public space, territoriality, and homelessness are molding the contemporary face of our city.
This talk will consider whether our traditional vision of 'home' is compatible with the new inner-urban phenomena of sidewalk settlements, transitionary shelters, 'nimby' neighborhoods, glittering towers for the wealthy, and a city government torn between policies of regulation or laissez faire.
Free and open to the public.
