Race and Architecture Town Hall

  • TYPE

    Professional Development



As architects, we must understand the role we play in perpetuating systems of oppression and commit ourselves to designing and building for equity. Join the BSA for a series of stories about life as a Black architect and a moderated discussion and town hall with Greg Minott AIA around the communities where we live, work, and play.

This meeting is the first in the BSA’s Race and Architecture series focused on listening, learning, and engaging architects and designers of color in different stages of their career. This introductory Town Hall will influence and lay the groundwork for the following sessions, which will address a series of racial issues and discuss systemic solutions that we can all incorporate into our lives and practice.
