On Thursday, September 6th, SOM Senior Urban Designer Dawveed Scully will speak at an event hosted by the Washington, D.C. chapter of the American Institute of Architects' Urban Design Committee. Titled "Spatial Equity in DC," the event includes a screening of Chocolate City, a documentary by Ellie Walton and Sam Wild, and a panel discussion.
Panelists will discuss topics explored in the film, including displacement and gentrification. Scully and other panelists will share insight on strategies for new development that can support equity and community engagement and facilitate economic growth, without negatively impacting the residents of a neighborhood. Don Edwards of Justice and Sustainability Associates; Emily Morris of EKM Law PLLC; Mark Simpson of Urban Atlantic; and Stan Wall of HR&A Advisors will join Scully on the panel. Uwe Brandes of Georgetown University will moderate the panel.
Scully is based in SOM's Chicago office. An architect and urbanist, he is passionate about using design as a tool for empowerment and collaboration among local residents, stakeholders, and government for equitable design outcomes.
The event provides 1.5 LU credits.
