✅ Week 1 - How’re y’all feeling?
Today we kicked off the new Duda Visiting Designer Program with @massdesigngroup.

The two-week program challenges architecture and landscape architecture students to reimagine how we design sites of memory and justice within Black communities throughout NC. 

This studio will explore NC’s complex history through the lens of racial justice, from the era of slavery to now. 

Worldwide, memory and history in built form—memorials, monuments, museums, street names, plaques, historic preservation markers—carry a responsibility to communicate complex histories and provide spaces for healing.

The construction of public memory lends weight to particular narratives, bringing us to ask: 

Who or what is deemed important? Whose voices are we hearing, and who is left out?

The goal of this new, special program is to answer these questions - then design the project approach, narrative, and ultimately a solution.

Teams will address these challenges and design memorials at three specific sites throughout NC:

📍 An extension of the Riverwalk in Wilmington which honors those who were enslaved.
📍 A tribute to desegregation on the site of the Royal Ice Cream Parlor in Durham. 
📍 A new memorial at the North Carolina State Capitol designed to replace the previously standing confederate monuments.

We’re looking forward to seeing the ideas, conversations and designs our students bring to the table over the next two weeks.

This opportunity would not exist without the professional guidance of MASS, and the financial support of Turan and Linda Duda.
Today, the magic starts.
