The “Architecture, Urban Space, and Democracy,” colloquium was held under the auspices of the Project in the History of Political Thought. The piece, available here, praised the interdisciplinary nature of the gathering, with manifold conversations among architects, planners, historians, political theorists, and even archeologists. One concept discussed at the colloquium that was especially highlighted in the article was “planned openness,” as one possible way of relating urban design and normative ideals of democracy.
