This episode features April De Simone, a transdisciplinary practitioner working at the intersection of architecture, planning, and systems thinking. She collaborates with different communities across the country, bringing to light the lasting impacts of redlining, urban renewal, and gentrification.
What are new ways to explore housing as a key node in ecosystems underpinning community fabric and the reinvention of democracy? How might we consider where we live as one aspect of our entire experience and health? How can under-represented voices finally be heard and valued to co-create equitable systems and shared value?
April shares insights related to her collaborative experiences surfacing, reframing, and dismantling intentionally designed systems of inequity and, how, through this reimagining, we might, somehow, find a new path to democracy.
