Opportunities for new perspectives exist in the ways we design for citizens to engage with each other to see the world differently. Through the process of making, experimentation, and collaborative engagement we can provide for meaningful and poetic environments. Katie Lee is a junior architect, artist, and activist interested in providing opportunities for new perspectives through traditional and non-conventional design tools.
