Join us Thursday, February 22, at 5:30 p.m., for a free public lecture with architect David Dowell.Dowell has been a partner at architecture firm El Dorado for more than 25 years. He founded the Design+Make Studio at Kansas State University 12 years ago, part of a teaching career that spans back to 1991 at institutions from the University of California, Berkeley (MArch, ’94); the Technical University in Dresden, Germany; Kansas City Art Institute; Washington University in St. Louis (AB ’89); and the University of Kansas.Established in Kansas City in 1996, El Dorado is an integrated architecture, urban design, curatorial, educational, and fabrication practice. Their ethos is born of the Midwest: its frugality, its pragmatism, and its commitment to allowing and cultivating risk. El Dorado’s earliest works in the late 1990s were opportunistic rehabilitations of dozens of turn-of-the-century as well as art deco and midcentury modern buildings. These early experiencesformed an unexpected foundation of respect for and curiosity about historic buildings. This sense of becoming accidental preservationists persists to today and is the focus of this talk. This event is part of the Sam Fox School’s Public Lecture Series and is free and open to the public. The lecture will take place in Steinberg Hall.Free parking is available in the East End Garage beginning at 5:00 p.m. Enter the garage from Forsyth Boulevard or Forest Park Parkway.

Abstract: Politicians like to repeat that “we are all in this together,” that “we are all in the same boat.” Yet they wage wars that they do not fight; they neglect schools that their kids do not attend; they marginalize neighborhoods where they do not live; they allow exploitative workplaces where they do not work; they underfund healthcare systems that they do not use; they ruin economies that they can easily escape. In a nutshell, they lack enough skin in the game. This is a type of political inequality that has not been sufficiently discussed by political philosophers and the public at large. There is a case to be made for requiring high public officials to cast their lot with the governed and internalize the costs of their decisions on a footing of equality.
