Cities of the CDC
Lecture by Geoff Manaugh
Geoff Manaugh examines urban design in the context of epidemiology, pandemics, and quarantine, including measures taken by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the United States.
We asked Geoff Manaugh of BLDGBLOG to lecture on this topic in October 2009, while he was teaching a design studio called “Landscapes of Quarantine.” With Nicola Twilley, he curated an exhibition of the same name at the Storefront for Art and Architecture the following spring. We invited Geoff back to the CCA as “Blogger in the Archives” in the summer of 2010. The cover image is Permacultural Hinterland by Liam Young and Darryl Chen. © Liam Young and Darryl Chen
