In a talk called "Shaping Community Futures through Policy & Architecture," Elizabeth Timme, the Co-Founder and Co-Executive Director of LA-Más, will discuss how the non-profit organization's architectural projects support pedestrian families in Los Angeles and address social instability within the city.

Timme is a professor of architecture at Woodbury University’s School of Architecture. She serves on the Zoning Advisory Committee of Re:Code LA, which works to transform the city’s outdated zoning code. She earned her master’s degree in architecture from Harvard University and her bachelor’s degree in architecture from the University of Southern California.

The talk, part of the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center’s “Social Securities” series, will take place on January 31 at 4pm in HSSB 6020.
