Service-Learning in Design and Planning: Educating at the Boundaries
Editor Tom Angotti and contributors Michael Rios and Jodi Rios will discuss how urban planning and architecture educators can challenge traditional community-university relationships by modeling meaningful and reciprocal partnerships. Released this winter, Service-Learning in Design and Planning is a ground-breaking collection of fifteen case studies by design educators who critically explore the current practice of community-engaged learning in architecture, landscape design, and urban planning, and radically revising the standard protocol for university-initiated design/build projects in the community.
