Episode 96: Architectural Justice Warriors
We start the show with some quick reactions to the election being called with a plea for radicalism and an announcement for congress. We then return where we left off on the topic of architecture with corrections to the Trump story; and reactions to people observing the worst of the profession. We also cover a new restorative justice center by the best of the profession (woke Black Architects), explore and anarchistic practice or style, and finish with a very liberal plan for localizing reparations from the editor of strong towns.
