This Space of Democracy Lecture is presented by Matthew Jelacic, who is working with communities to create affordable shelter for the Crow Nation in Montana and assisting in the reconstruction of schools in Haiti. Jelacic is also involved with projects using sustainable materials for sheltering displaced people. From 1996-2003 he was a partner in the firm Gans & Jelacic, whose work included emergency relief shelters and school furniture for the New York City School Construction Authority. He received his architecture degrees at Pratt Institute and Harvard University's Graduate School of Design, and was a Loeb Fellow in 2003-4. In his talk, he will explore the issues surrounding social and environmental justice in developing communities.
Traumatic Urbanization and its Consequences is the third lecture in the Space of Democracy lecture series.
