Disciplinary Architecture?

As I continue to read and write for my forthcoming book, it reminds me of how many people are writing to inform us about all the ways we are influenced, some overt and others covert. This is a fascinating article on how architecture and design can include certain people and deliberately exclude others. Much of my research is on building social capital, network formation and the importance of diversity and inclusion. Much of this stems from when I was a little girl and I saw bullying or when I was invited to a birthday party (or not) and some 'others' were not. It takes so little to be inclusive, and I still wonder as an adult why anyone wants to exclude, anytime I am not kind, I am the one that loses a little dignity, a little humanity and another small piece of my soul.
