UPCOMING EVENT(S):
DECOLONIZING DESIGN
WITH WANDA DALLA COSTA

January 28, 2021
9:00am – 10:30am (MDT) / 11:00am – 12:30 pm (EDT)


On January 28th, we invite you to join us for an online workshop led by Wanda Dalla Costa focusing on decolonizing design education from an Indigenous perspective. The workshop will dive into four Indigenous design research paradigms: Futurity, Placekeeping, Pluriverse, and Design as Ceremony. Participants will come away from this workshop with a deeper awareness of Indigenous design practices, which can bring insight into their own practice and research.


Wanda Dalla Costa, AIA, LEED A.P. is a member of the Saddle Lake Cree Nation. She is a practicing architect, a professor and a YBCA 100 2019 honoree. At Arizona State University, she is the director and founder of the Indigenous Design Collaborative, a community-driven design and construction program, which brings together tribal community members, industry and a multidisciplinary team of ASU students and faculty to co-design and co-develop solutions for tribal communities. Dalla Costa holds a Master of Design Research in City Design from SCI-Arc, and a Master of Architecture from the University of Calgary.
