Today our guest is Michaele Pride who is a professor of architecture at the University of New Mexico where her work focuses on the intersection between design and public health.
Michaele has a lot of in depth experience in both urban design and architecture in both the private and public sector. She really emphasizes consensus, collaboration, and public engagement throughout her teaching.
Michaele leads and supports projects through the UNM's Design and Planning Assistance Center (DPAC), including several for NM Mainstreet communities and The Stories of Route 66: the International District (a plan for a new community space in Albuquerque). She also helped found the Design Professionals Coalition after the Rodney King Riots in LA to help unassisted neighborhoods in south LA.
In this episode we talk about designing for unassisted communities and approaching community space in a different, more inclusive, way.
