Rice Architecture Spring 2021 Lecture Series: Elizabeth Timme and Chaz Kern
Elizabeth Timme, co-executive director, LA Más, and Chaz Kern, program manager, design lead, LA Más, will present the 10th annual Llewelyn-Davies Sahni Innovative Practice lecture "I Heard You Build Benches" as part of the Spring 2021 Lecture Series.
How do projects embed design without centering it as the central value in community-serving projects (i.e., building beyond the bench?). LA Más is a non-profit that designs and builds resident-led neighborhood-scale forms of community development with a focus of working in Northeast LA. Guests can hear about how they make affordable housing projects that don’t look affordable, storefront redesigns that aren’t superficial, and what it takes to do small, yet impactful projects.
