Socially Just Design in Chicago: 5 projects that activate communities


Socially just design is defined by the following objectives: first, to engage a broader cross-section of society, especially those not typically able to access architectural services and, second, to create innovative design solutions that address complex social and economic inequities that impact these communities. Learn about projects, firms, and organizations addressing the design needs of Chicago communities.


This program is the second in a series to highlight the AIA Chicago Foundation's new award The Roberta Feldman Socially Just Award. The award intends to honor excellence in built projects and design programs guided by the conviction that access to high quality architecture is not a privilege, it is a human right. It will be launched in 2021 in conjunction with AIA Chicago's Design Excellence Awards.
