NOTE: Registration for this panel discussion for has reached capacity, but we will live stream both events on our Facebook page, today and tomorrow at 1pm PST / 4pm EST. See link below:


This registration is for PART TWO of a two-part conversation organized by LOHA on the future of design and community engagement in the public realm. Bringing together a group of architects and community advocates, the conversation will highlight Detroit’s unique perspective, and ask what can be learned from the city’s history of resilience and community organizing as we attempt to grasp our new social reality.

This second panel will explore the effect of social distancing on the future of design in the public realm. How can outdoor public spaces be reconsidered to accommodate our new spatial and health concerns? What has the pandemic taught us about how we can pragmatically evolve architecture and city planning in a way that embraces our new way of life? Panelists include; Linda Samuels, PHD (Professor of Urban Design, WashU), Lorcan O’Herlihy, FAIA (Founder, Design Principal, LOHA), Melissa Dittmer, AIA (Chief Design Officer, Bedrock Detroit), and Steven Lewis, FAIA (Principal, ZGF).
