Milton Curry Martin Luther King, Jr. Lecture

January 23, 2008 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Curry engages in multi-disciplinary work that includes architecture and design, urbanism, industrial design, cultural theory, and real estate development. His critical interpretations of the intersections between urbanism and race, economic behavior and public policy, and commerce and identity, require fundamental consideration of the formation of capitalism and concepts of class difference, as well as racial difference in the context of architectural and urban space. His research has led to theoretical and pragmatic propositions for reshaping the discourse of urbanism around questions of class, spatial equity, and the diversification and expansion of public space.

A principal of OrbitMCAdesignstudio (founded 1995) and Orbit Development Group, LLC (founded 1999), Curry utilizes urban real estate development as the platform from which to create innovative and experimental urban space.
