On Friday, September 14, the Center for American Architecture and Design will host K. Wyking Garrett as part of the Friday Lunch Forum series. His talk will be entitled, "Imagine Africatown: Culturally Responsive Design & Planning in Black Neighborhoods." Garrett is the President of the Africatown Community Land Trust, an organization that is buying and developing land in the historically black section of the city of Seattle, and is committed to advancing Black architectural vernacular in the process.
Roughly every other Friday during the fall and spring semesters, the Center hosts the Friday Lunch Forum Series. The aim of the series is for faculty, staff, and students to meet in an informal atmosphere to debate topics and to share ideas about history, practice, theory, and new directions for architecture. Recordings of each forum will be posted as they become available.
