Disrupting the Order of Things: How to get involved and get things done!

MDC Museum of Art + Design, Freedom Tower

Presentation: Tony García (Street Plans Collaborative)
Cities and citizens around the world are embracing an incremental approach and grassroots energy to plan and implement neighborhood improvement projects.

Join us for a conversation with Tony García, a leader in the Tactical Urbanism movement, who will share stories from projects around the country and will give advice on how you too can join the ever expanding list of folks who are making change happen in their communities.

Follow the Carbon: Climate Change, Housing Struggles, and the Reinvention of the Built Environment

MDC Museum of Art + Design, Freedom Tower

How can cities tackle climate change and inequality at the same time? Surprisingly, research shows that guaranteeing housing affordability is key to effective climate policies in cities. Considering the cities of Sao Paulo, New York and others comparatively, Aldana finds that urban climate policies have failed because of a general political inability to address race and class inequalities.

How Houston Reacts to Climate Change: The Innovations of Metalab Studio Joe Meppelink

MDC Museum of Art + Design, Freedom Tower

A founding principal of METALAB, a multi-disciplinary design firm in Houston, Texas, Joe Meppelink pursues resiliency and sustainable technologies. In response to extreme conditions with a lack of grid power, hurricane force winds, and storm surge flooding, Meppelink and METALAB have invented and deployed a range of tactical and technological responses. These projects range from a containerized, solar-powered, off-grid field office to modular farming and growing systems to elevated hurricane-resistant housing systems. While each of these addresses a critical issue, Meppelink finds that a similar ethos informs other projects (such as public parks and a fleet of river boats) in unexpected ways.

Mexico City for and by the People

MDC Museum of Art + Design, Freedom Tower

In this talk, Lorena Zárate, historian and president of Habitat International Coalition, reviews the urban movements and struggles that have shaped Mexico City’s political agendas and public policies, in particular those related to housing, public space, and mobility. In 2017, Mexico City adopted its own constitution, which is one of the first in the world to incorporate its inhabitants’ “Right to the City.” Zárate assesses the city’s achievements and challenges, as well as the lessons that other cities can learn from Mexico City’s 2016 New Urban Agenda.

The Politics of Public Space in Latin America

MDC Museum of Art + Design, Freedom Tower

This panel will consider cutting-edge urban initiatives in various Latin American cities, and the two paths they suggest to neighborhood revitalization through urban design. One is the vision of elected officials such as mayors, and the other emerges from grassroots activism. Cities like Medellin, Caracas, and Mexico City have been at the forefront of new initiatives in formerly underserved communities. A discussion of these projects will serve as a base for future choices Miami could consider.

Panelists: Alejandro Haiek (LAB PRO FAB, Venezuela), Jorge Pérez Jaramillo (Santo Tomás University, Medellin, Colombia), Lorena Zárate (Hábitat International Coalition)

Moderator: Dr. Sonia Chao (University of Miami)

Building Up! Cooperative Urban Reengineering, Alejandro Haiek (LAB.PRO.FAB, Venezuela)


Award-winning Venezuelan architect Alejandro Haiek co-founded LAB.PRO.FAB (Project and Fabrication Laboratory) in the early 2000s to address social, political, and environmental issues through a collaborative architectural practice.  Working outside official channels in the slums of Caracas, he has initiated bottom-up, community-based projects and built unconventional structures that encourage social diversity, community empowerment, cultural activism, and sustainability.  This presentation will focus on two of LAB.PRO.FAB’s innovative and subversive projects that reimagine relations between public landscapes, post-industrial ecologies, and political networks.

Death Cab For Cutie

Fillmore Miami Beach

Death Cab for Cutie is an American alternative rock band formed in Bellingham, Washington in 1997. The band is composed of Ben Gibbard, Nick Harmer, Jason McGerr, Dave Depper, and Zac Rae. Death Cab for Cutie rose from being a side project to becoming one of the most exciting groups on the indie rock scene of the 2000’s, with their emotive songwriting and cross-genre sound landing somewhere between indie and emo. They have been nominated for eight Grammy Awards, including Best Rock Album for their most recent release, 2015’s Kintsugi. Their ninth studio album is released later this year. See them live at the Fillmore Miami Beach with special guests CHARLY BLISS. Tickets are available at http://www.fillmoremb.com//EventDetail?tmeventid=0D00549AB320C3D7&offerid=0
