The talk will discuss the various ways Lori has responded to pressing issues of our time. Lori will present an overview of key aspects of ongoing research, advocacy, and activism that have focused on topics from immigration and the border, equity within the built environment, to reproductive justice. All provide various opportunities to intersect with law, policy, and the built environment.


Lori Brown’s creative practice examines the relationships between architecture and social justice with particular emphasis on gender and its impact upon spatial relationships. She is the author of Contested Spaces: Abortion Clinics, Women’s Shelters and Hospitals, the editor of Feminist Practices: Interdisciplinary Approaches to Women in Architecture and the forthcoming Bloomsbury Global Encyclopedia of Women in Architecture, 1960-2020 co-edited with Dr. Karen Burns. She is the co-founder and leads ArchiteXX, a gender equity in architecture organization in New York City. Brown is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects and a 2021 Architectural League of New York Emerging Voices recipient. She is a Distinguished Professor at the School of Architecture Syracuse University and a registered architect in New York state.
