Architecture Event: Informal Cities Workshop Kickoff Lecture: Chelina Odbert
Chelina Odbert, co-founder and executive director of the community development and design nonprofit Kounkuey Design Initiative (KDI), will deliver a public lecture in conjunction with the annual Informal Cities Workshop.
The annual Informal Cities Workshop provides students with an intensive, hands-on opportunity to grapple with frictions and interconnections that exist between the informal and the formal aspects of the city. It consists of a keynote lecture, which is free and open to the public, followed by a one-credit, weekend-long design charrette. Previous workshops have explored conditions in Varanasi, India; Lima, Peru; Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa; and Caracas, Venezuela.
All attendees must abide by the University’s guidelines for event visitors
