Payam Shalcian and Jamie Black of the Institute Without Borders (IWB) are out to solve the world's "Wicked Problems".

In today's Presentation of the Day, we see Payam and Jamie speaking in specific on the research they did to inspire the economically and environmentally-stressed communities of Lota, Chile to shift towards resiliency.

In this presentation (from PKN Toronto Vol. 13), you'll hear how they avoided methods of design imperialism and interventionist architecture and focused more so on ownership to combat issues surrounding planning, housing, and funding.
