The Arsenal of Exclusion & Inclusion

On the April 17, 2015 edition of 99% Invisible:

Cities are great. They have movement, activity and diversity. But go to any city and it’s pretty clear, a place can be diverse without really being integrated. This segregation isn’t accidental. There are design elements in the urban landscape, that Daniel D’Oca calls “weapons,” that are used by “architects, planners, policy-makers, developers, real estate brokers, community activists, neighborhood associations, and individuals to wage the ongoing war between integration and segregation.”

Friday at 7:45am & 4:45pm and Saturday at 8:35am.

Roman Mars is host and producer of KALW’s 99% Invisible, a short radio show about design and architecture.
