Design that Listens

Pragmatic Visions Ep. 16

The impact of design reaches far beyond the built environment, deeply affecting the emotional and physical well-being of communities, especially those that have experienced discrimination and disinvestment. Stephanie Pankiewicz, PLA believes it is the responsibility of designers to educate themselves on policy and development patterns that have embedded inequality in our communities. Following that education is the ability to listen so that design may serve the ultimate purpose of unifying people and celebrating culture. Listen in as Stephanie shares her experience working on projects where she leads by listening and how designers can integrate this approach into every project they work on.
