    Nina Briggs, Allied ASID

    Lecturer, Cal Poly Pomona | Founder, The Fabric

    Co-President, L.A. Forum for Architecture & Urban Design

    As design becomes increasingly interdisciplinary and intersectional, Nina Briggs explores how these shifts transform pedagogy and practice – how paradigms of perspective, representation, narrative, and experience are interrogated and acknowledged. Ms. Briggs’s research employs an informed and holistic observation of human behavior and the layering of cultural operating systems in the making of space. This approach is working to incorporate the sensorial factors permeating the built environment and the human experience therein. Ms. Briggs believes these are the keys to unlocking future visions for just and healthy places – towards building communities of well-being and coexistence with the natural world, exercising our pleasure and responsibility as designers to ethically reshape the landscape.
