Do No Harm: The Role of Design in Complicated Times

NeoCon Theater, 19th Floor, theMART, Chicago

  AIA Chicago invites you to a keynote presentation by Liz Ogbu, Founder and Principal, Studio O (New York City) at NeoCon.

A designer, urbanist and spatial justice advocate, Liz Ogbu is founder and principal of Studio O, a multidisciplinary consultancy working to innovate challenged urban environments globally. From designing shelters for immigrant day laborers in the US to a water and health social enterprise for low-income Kenyans, Liz has a long history of working with communities in need to leverage the power of design to catalyze sustained social impact. Her work blends human-centered design research methodologies, architecture and equitable development principles, cross-disciplinary design thinking frameworks and social agendas.  

           “In most of my projects, it’s the wrong problem outlined in the brief. You can only right-fit it by talking to people.”

                     - Liz Ogbu in Architect magazine, May 2018
