Come join The Society for History and Graphics (SHAG), AIGA, and Morgan State University's School of Architecture and Planning for a talk and workshop about how we might make space in the future. Application House is a speculative design project for a future house and neighborhood, after a brief talk about that project, you'll have the chance to participate in a collaborative workshop in which we'll draw a whole city.
