What does an ethical landlord look like?


This discussion amplifies the Biennial contribution by FICA—Fundo Imobiliário Comunitário para Aluguel, What does an ethical landlord look like?, which imagines landlords in an alternative way, namely, as operating based on principles rather than on market forces.

It features Biennial contributors Renato Cymbalista and Bianca Antunes (FICA) in conversation with Rembert Biemond (Edith Maryon Foundation, Switzerland), Ariel Sosa (program coordinator for Habitat para la Humanidad, Argentina), Jennie Fronczak (LUCHA, Chicago), Ana Paula Walker (University of Michigan, Ann Arbor) and Anna Julia Dietszch (Columbia GSAPP, New York). 

The first part of the discussion (11:00am–1:00pm) will feature institutions that, like FICA, hold property and aim to use it in progressive ways; it will address their experiences, expertise, challenges, and anxieties. The second part (2:00–3:30pm) examines mapping projects centered on alternative properties of landlordship worldwide.
