Diamond, Wilson and Ripple discuss work related to scholarship published in the article Constructing Health: Representations of Health and Housing in Charlottesvilles Urban Renewals, in the Journal of Architectural Education. This article examines the co-construction of urban health and blight through architectural representation during urban renewal, exploring how building imagery was used to convey social and epidemiological diagnoses, producing racial othering through depictions of space. We argue that racialized image-making practices used by designers and planners perpetuated inequities that urban renewal policy purported to reconcile while masking the true generating dynamics of white neglect and wealth extraction. Each of the authors will use the content of the article as a way to introduce their broader research agendas, and implications of this work for current building and planning practices.|
