Urban Works Agency: A Seat at the Table

A series of tables invites visitors to witness and perform collective decision-making on the city.UWA (Janette Kim, Neeraj Bhatia, Antje Steinmuller and Christopher Roach) is a faculty-led research lab at California College of the Arts that leverages architectural design to affect social justice, ecological vitality, and economic resilience. We work with interdisciplinary partners on research and design projects disseminated through books, exhibitions, and interactive media. We run symposia, studios, seminars, and a post-professional program to activate students and partners as agents in the entrepreneurial and counter-cultural legacies of the Bay Area.The concept was one of the 25 selected ideas at the Future Architecture Call for Ideas 2019 that generated 357 ideas by 704 creatives from 60 countries all over the world.
