James Rojas: Enacted Environments

City and Regional Planning Practice Colloquium

James Rojas is an urban planner, community activist, and artist. He is a nationally recognized urban planner who examines U.S. Latino cultural influences on urban planning and design. He developed “interactive planning” — a tool to engage children and underserved communities in the planning process by breaking down the planning process into simple terms and helping participants translate conceptual planning ideas into physical forms. He holds a master of city planning and a master of science in architecture studies from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
