Title: SAH Latrobe Symposium on Race, Ethnicity and Architecture in the Nation's Capital
State: District of Columbia
Country: United States
Summary: Governments and private developers have employed built environments to control and regulate racialized bodies. Through the systemic planning of residential and commercial districts, public spaces, and transit, they ensured the growth of isolated enclaves whose economic health varied based on inhabitants’ race. Historically-specific understandings of race have likewise shaped the design and construction of the capital’s architecture, for example influencing the development of various building typologies, ranging from embassies and museums to shopping centers. The 13th Latrobe Chapter Biennial Symposium therefore calls for a timely investigation of the symbiotic relationship between race and architecture in the greater Washington, DC region. It conceptualizes race broadly, not as an issue of binaries, but rather of corporeal hierarchies that meaningfully structure the design and experience of architectural and urban spaces. The symposium offers four paper sessions and two optional field tours exploring the intersections of race, ethnicity, and the built environment, featuring a diverse array of speakers from the National Capital Region and beyond. The complete program and list of speakers, paper topics, and tours is available on the Chapter's website.
