The Daniels Faculty's Hindsight is 20/20 event series focuses on phenomena that have emerged during the 20 years – reflecting nearly the duration of a generation. During this time, what circumstances in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, art, urban design, and forestry have changed? Our speakers and exhibitions will explore how our disciplines continue to be transformed by upheavals in technology, politics, and the environment.
Twenty keywords inspire our collection of talks, panels, and installations, drawn from annual lists of "words of the year" published by leading dictionaries and literary venues. These keywords reflect changes in consciousness and historical developments that have altered, in ways large and small, the contexts in which we work:
