AN INCLUSIVE EDGE: A Panel Discussion with Architects and Advocates

Today we are rethinking the culture of architecture. Those who come to the field from diverse backgrounds are inclined to practice architecture in unexpected ways and places. Do they have the potential to disrupt the status quo to move the field forward? An Inclusive Edge, hosted on the occasion of the first Chicago Architecture Biennial, focusses on what these practitioners bring to the table that will provide clarity for the future practice of architecture.
