Urban@Parsons proudly presents a lecture with Julia King.
Julia King is in the throes of challenging what it means to be an architect. Her focus is on improving the lot of poor and disenfranchised communities. Rather than designing buildings she has turned her attention to a much grittier issue: sanitation.
The 31 year old Venezuelan British architect and urban researcher is based in both London and New Dehli. So far she has constructed a sewer for 322 low-income houses in New Dehli, and is regenerating the Taj East drain, which runs through the slums near the Taj Mahal. She is also working on a flat pack pit latrine in Rural India
