Anne Whiston Spirn, Professor, MIT http://depts.washington.edu/belarc/blogs/events/2013/05/15/anne-whiston-spirn http://depts.washington.edu/belarc/blogs/events/2013/05/15/anne-whiston-spirn#comm

.

Please join author, photographer, landscape architect and MIT professor Anne Whiston Spirn in a lecture and discussion on visual thinking, based upon her book 

The Eye Is a Door: Photography and the Art of Visual Thinking.  Spirn writes: “To see is the linguistic root of idea; for me, it is the seed.  Photography is to seeing what poetry is to writing: a way of thinking, a disciplined practice that may produce insight, a condensed telling. Through photography, I try to discover what is there, hidden and real, to understand why and how things come about and to imagine what they might become.”  

Coffee/Tea/Breads to be served courtesy of CBE.  However, please refrain from eating in the classroom.

Critical Design Event - Designing for Gender Equality http://depts.washington.edu/belarc/blogs/events/2013/02/15/ginger-daniel http://depts.washington.edu/belarc/blogs/events/2013/02/15/ginger-daniel#comm

Addressing gender inequality and women’s empowerment has been globally recognized as a breakthrough strategy for addressing all major development goals and as a precondition for overcoming poverty, hunger and disease. 

While designers (architects, landscape architects, planners, engineers) are frequently moved or called to serve in the developing world, they are not necessarily equipped to see and understand unique challenges and opportunities due to gender inequality. 

Without this lens, design interventions may not address these needs and have the potential to further reinforce existing obstacles, discrimination or influences of the built environment. 

As designers, how do we approach our design process and interventions to attend to these critical gender dynamics and development opportunities?
