MiA: Sam Olbekson on Cultural Expression in Architecture as a Means to Community Building

December 10, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Is architecture more than good design? Should architects address societal issues like equity and sustainability?
The Friends of the Institute invite you to join us virtually for a FREE talk by Sam Olbekson about “Cultural Expression in Architecture as a Means to Community Building.”
Sam Olbekson is Principal of Native American Design at Cuningham Group and Founder of Full Circle Indigenous Planning. He has spent more than 20 years working with Native American clients on culturally significant planning and design. Sam brings the perspective of a member of the White Earth Nation of Ojibwe who grew up in Native communities. He believes that design, health, equity, culture, community, economic opportunity are all inextricably linked. Good architecture takes these all into account. As an architect, he sees his role as place-maker with a vision of an equitable and just future.
This is a FREE virtual event that will take place over Zoom. Reserve your ticket here: bit.ly/38Try57
