Shaping Equitable Development: Design as Activism

When: Fri., April 6, 6 p.m. 2018

Pittsburgh has seen some growth over the last several years, and city leaders are expecting more. The city’s tech sector is booming, and the region’s hospitals keep expanding. But all this growth can create issues, like gentrification. Pittsburgh-based urban-home design firm Module wants to help locals brainstorm solutions to these potential problems at an event tonight titled Shaping Equitable Development: Design as Activism. The public is invited to take a free tour of a Module demo unit at a vacant lot in Uptown. After the tour, a panel discussion with local equitable-development experts, like Lawrenceville Corporation’s Ed Nusser and Grow Pittsburgh’s Raqueeb Bey, will be held at Paramount Film Exchange. Topics include sustainable growth, housing development and activism. Light refreshments will be served. - Ryan Deto
