After combined action by ISAPD and several MArch I students, ISAPD would like to welcome Oneida architect and critic, Chris Cornelius as the Louis I. Kahn Visiting Assistant Professor at Yale School of Architecture (YSoA).
Cornelius will be teaching an Advanced Design Studio entitled, “De-Colonizing Indigenous Housing”, where students will work with the Opaskwyak Cree Nation (OCN) in The Pas, Manitoba Canada. The OCN is interested in looking at housing in a new manner. The students will engage OCN tribal leaders and community activists to produce documentation of housing conditions and types. Students will continue to work on further detailed proposals related to mapping, triage, and reciprocities throughout the semester.
