Sheila Foster, 2022 Clarkson Chair in Planning
"Infrastructure-Sharing in Cities Pre- and Post-Pandemic"

In her public lecture, Sheila Foster will offer reflections on the diverse ways that cities enabled the creation of shared spaces and structures to provide public benefits and goods during the pandemic. The thesis of the talk is that there is a difference between the creative “placemaking” efforts that occurred on streets, plazas, sidewalks, parks and other open spaces, and the conversion of underutilized public and private structures and land to create tangible goods, such as housing, for specific populations. The distinction between these two kinds of infrastructure-sharing has implications for how cities can address the needs of their most vulnerable and marginal populations while correcting for the legacy of unjust land use practices that have shaped contemporary urban landscapes.
