How are topics of diversity, equity or inclusion in architecture relevant? Inceptions of public housing in Chicago highlight buildings and urban spaces as cultural hegemony relative to racism and political and economic power. This panel further specifies Chicago public housing sites as semiotics of a “culture of Black American urban poverty” and well intentioned social scientific and postmodernist “International Style” design projects. Yet another example of architecture as text considers silenced histories of cities and urban landscapes.
