CPID Talks

 

The CPID talks are aimed at fostering a dialogue about interesting work being done that is relevant to the public interest design field, as well as exploring the very nature of public interest design itself, by inviting speakers from a wide variety of disciplines to share their work and thoughts in an informal setting. These talks are open to the public and held in the CPID offices in the School of Architecture at PSU (Shattuck Hall 217).
