The University of Minnesota College of Design presents
INTERFACES: Architecture Lecture Series
Friday, March 20, 2020
Rapson Hall Room 100
Joel Sanders, FAIA is the Principal of JSA, his award-winning architecture firm based in New York as well as MIXdesign, a new inclusive design consultancy that promotes human connectivity among people of different ages, genders, disabilities, races and religions, enabling progressive institutions, government agencies and companies to recruit and retain diverse talent.
For the past two years, Sanders has spearheaded Stalled!, an interdisciplinary design-research project that takes as its point of departure national debates surrounding transgender access to public restrooms to address the need to create safe, sustainable and inclusive public restrooms for everyone. Sanders is also a Professor at Yale School of Architecture where he is the Director of the M.Arch II Program.
He is the editor of STUD: Architectures of Masculinity and Groundwork: Between Landscape and Architecture—his writings and practice have explored the complex relationship between culture and social space, looking at the impact that evolving cultural forces have on the designed environment.
