Segregation by Design
Using colorized and remastered historic photography, Segregation By Design documents the intentional destruction of communities of color due to the federal policies of redlining, “urban renewal,” and freeway construction.
Through stark before-and-after comparisons, cartographic primary sources, and demographic data, Segregation By Design reveals the extent to which the American city was methodically hollowed out based on race. The project covers roughly 180 municipalities which were redlined by the Federal Housing Administration and received federal funding for “urban renewal.”
Presenter Adam Paul Susaneck holds a Masters of Architecture degree from Columbia University and focuses on addressing historic inequity and ongoing climate issues through urban planning, architecture, and transportation infrastructure.
