The Boston Architectural College invites you to join us for Design, Advocacy and Digital Tools—Reimagining Agency, a virtual public lecture by June A. Grant on Wednesday, February 24 at 6:00PM EST.

This lecture will discuss how digital fabrication and emerging technologies coupled with a strategic approach play a critical role in crafting both short and long-term community-led urban regeneration. In general, architectural services fall within two buckets "fee-for-hire" versus "pro-bono" with a layer of place keeping for public appeal. After analyzing both models for viable effective impact, we have crafted a different model at blinkLAB architecture - one that explores publicly posed tasks that operate within a productive cooperative model.
