Join d.talks in conversation with K. Jake Chakasim and Neena Verma on diaspora and belonging.
Our questions leading to the prompt for this discussion started with care for others, particularly as we navigate isolating lockdowns, masking, and even mourning. What is the role of architecture and landscape architecture in creating a feeling of belonging? What stories of occupation and conflict can be amended with new ways forward?
