Description
Architect and Architectural Forum editor Allan Temko speaks to the Council for Civic Unity in San Francisco, CA. Temko focuses on desegregated and affordable housing and the physical and psychological renewal of inner cities, concentrating on mainly San Francisco, Chicago, and Washington, DC. Temko calls for organically-designed city planning with a comprehensive scale in order to desegregate neighborhoods. Temko discusses the ruin of natural and architectural landscape in the wake of urban renewal, specifically with new builds and freeways, that reinforce segregation. Temko promotes a new type of renewal that promotes civic unity founded on the idea that physical and spiritual health are tied to the built environment. Temko describes the dilapidated conditions of public housing and how housing codes need to be enforced, rather than replaced with urban renewal projects. Temko understands Americas preservationists inclinations as largely due to a fear of the future, and sees that it can be restricting to innovation in architecture and city planning. The rest of the program Temko focuses on how to change communities that have been negatively impacted by segregation and industrialization through the adoption of aesthetic and architectural reforms. With this Temko outlines the public housing system and how its efforts need to expand beyond housing and aid in the vast economic inequality its residents face in order to remedy the maladies associated with urbanization.
