Taylor Holloway joins the School of Architecture at Fridays@4 for a talk on the power of design as a tool for anti-racism, followed by a workshop for Portland State University architecture students focusing on anti-racist design practice. This Fridays@4 will have a runtime of two hours.
Taylor Holloway is a designer, architect, educator, and maker with broad experience using design-driven approaches to promote equity in the built environment, advance individual and collective capacities for social impact, and champion the preservation of shared cultural legacies. Taylor is also core organizer for the national antiracist organization Design as Protest.
Design as Protest is a coalition of designers mobilizing strategy to dismantle the privilege and power structures that use architecture and design as tools of oppression. Co-organized by BIPOC designers, we exist to hold our profession accountable in reversing the violence and injustice that architecture, design, and urban planning practices have inflicted upon Black people and communities. Design as Protest champions the radical vision of racial, social, and cultural reparation through the process and outcomes of design.
