"Wisdom From The Field" Latrobe Prize Panel 

Public interest design is transforming architectural practices.

This transformation is a widespread response to the concern that the conventional model of practice responds solely to the paying client, limiting the capacity to address the problems of our time. How can we embrace and support a transformed profession and communicate the profession's public service values? By what means can we facilitate the best public interest practices and strategies? What are the opportunities to expand existing and attract new funding sources? Where do you, as a professional or as a student, fit into this transformation? Download the 2011 Latrobe Prize winning research and white paper, which was published in the summer of 2013.

Katherine will present as part of a panel of practitioners leading the Chicago and national design conversation on social impact and design in the pubic interest. Saturday, February 8, 9:30 am–3:00 pm at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, 112 South Michigan Avenue, MacLean Ballroom.
