A manifesto to restore democracy and truth in the republic
Conceived at the Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design (GSD) and presented as part of Emmanuel Pratt’s Radical [Re] Constructions, at the University of Chicago’s Smart Museum“We The Publics” is a manifesto authored by Emmanuel Pratt and Dan Borelli that offers a multi-layered framework to rethink and examine the role, power, and purpose of the public in shaping and influencing the spatial evolution of the built environment.
We invite your responses via conversations, workshops, emails, installations, and public convenings but we reserve full editorial oversight to sustain the intention of this project- our shared responsibility towards a productive collective.
We introduced a material shift in newsprint that represented specific voices that we ask to respond with a brief quote or further definition of Publics.
We must restore a sense of equilibrium to our Publics
To shared resources for All
For the Ecology of the Future
We ask that you review our Proposition for a 28th Amendment
Make it Public
