LOOKING FORWARD TO 2013: CRITICAL EXPLORATIONS ON THE EXPANDED ROLE OF ARCHITECTURE
We have began 2013 in DSGN AGNC looking forward to a year of designs, actions, events, publications in partnership with a variety of groups. One thing we know for sure, we will continue to explore the expanded role of critical discourse, architecture and design in the building of communities. We look forward to sharing information on events and actions with you throughout the year (subscribe to our updates).
