Event Description

David Stark will present material from a research project on how digital modes of deliberation and representation are co-evolving with structures of public planning, design, and policy.  That research focuses on representations of the public and representations to the public in the process of rebuilding Lower Manhattan after 9/11.  Combining ideas from John Dewey and methods from science and technology studies, it analyzes the socio-technologies of assembly.  Who's demonstrating?  Architects demonstrate.
