Most of us would like to fit in our homes the way a snail fits into its shell. Migrants and people on the move don't necessarily have the luxury of building or finding spaces that match their idealized visions of home. Departing from Do Ho Suh's work, this talk by Steve Rugare (Associate Professor of Architecture at Kent State University) looks at how immigrant communities have adapted to the built environment in Cleveland and beyond.

SPEAKER BIO
Steve Rugare has been a full-time Associate Professor at Kent State University's College of Architecture & Environmental Design (CAED) since 2009. In addition to teaching introductory courses in architectural history, he teaches urban history and theory at the Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative (CUDC) and the upper division courses in architectural history and theory. He has also coordinated the Master of Urban Design capstone project at the CUDC. Before 2009, Steve was a full-time member of the CUDC professional staff, managing competitions, coordinating events, and doing editing and graphic design. With Terry Schwarz, he edited the first two volumes of the CUDC’s Urban Infill journal. He has advised the Cleveland Design Competition since its inception.

Steve Rugare’s primary research focus is modernism in the communicative and planning context of world’s expositions. This work--drawing on a wide interdisciplinary background in political theory, philosophy, art history, cultural studies, and intellectual history—has resulted in several articles and conference presentations, and a book is in the works.
