Design for Equity

Design for Equity

The purpose of Design for Equity is to not only reduce and ultimately eliminate oppressive structures, systems, and spaces but to identify and understand the complexities of oppression within design. Within this area of the CCD, we hope to employ an "investigative design" approach to investigate and conceptualize design interventions to promote spatial equity. From these narratives and user-centric research, we aim to curate and create design interventions to reduce oppression and advance equality.

Our mission is to curate a holistic narrative of community-based stories, scientific findings, and social system insights that inspire design-based interventions for equality. We define space as both physical and invisible; focusing on the physical and natural environment, such as buildings, urbanscapes, and green spaces, as well as invisible structures, such as governance, policy, economics, social dynamics, and cultural norms.
