Antje has has been appointed Associate Director of the Urban Works Agency at the California College of the Arts. UWA is an association of designers, urbanists, researchers, and activists. It’s aim is to engage, articulate, and research urban space.
From the manifesto —
“… Design Agency encompasses both legitimacy and ability; therefore, the questions that must be unpacked are both in regard to the foundation of, as well as the nature of, this particular kind of agency.This quest for agency will necessarily push design thinking beyond the confines of the object and the academic context, and prepare future urbanists to directly engage the larger systems, processes, and social conditions that will open design to an expanded field of urban practice.”
