This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Free Speech Movement. The student protest established UC Berkeley’s reputation for student activism and transformed the College of Environmental Design into a laboratory for experiments in countercultural art and politics. Associate Professor of Architecture, Greg Castillo, is presenting a series of lectures examining the legacy of design activism in the CED and its relationship to the Bay Area Counter Culture. He invited former faculty and students that are prominent for their dedication to design and creating social change.
