How did we get here?

Where do we need to go?

What tools will get us there?

Recent social upheavals spurred by the Black Lives Matter movement have shined the light on widespread systemic and institutional inequities across many professions. Planning and design professions are no exception. Understanding where past biases and motivations stem from before taking new actions will help us to shape future policies and create structural changes in our profession, our communities, and our society.

Many planners, architects, urban designers, and landscape architects want meaningful change in the demographics of our disciplines, the client interests we serve, and the project types which consistently receive the highest recognition.

Join 1992 BSA President M. David Lee FAIA and incoming 2021 BSA President Greg Minott AIA for a frank and constructive conversation around ways in which architecture currently engages race and some thoughts about changing the paradigm.

Moderator:

Gregory O. Minott AIA
Managing Principal, DREAM Collaborative LLC
2020 Vice-President/President Elect, BSA

Host:

Natasha Espada AIA
founder and Principal, STUDIO ENÉE
2020 President, BSA

Speaker:

M. David Lee FAIA
President and Managing Partner, Stull and Lee Incorporated, Architects

About M. David Lee FAIA
M. David Lee FAIA is the president and managing partner of Stull and Lee, Inc. He is a graduate of the University of Illinois and the Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD). He is a former Adjunct Professor in urban design at the GSD and the 1992 President of the Boston Society of Architects.

He received the BSA Award of Honor in 2000 and was the S+L principal-in charge for Vent Building No. 7 as part of the Central Artery project, a national AIA and Harleston Parker Medal award winner.

Race and Architecture Series
Architects, designers, and planners play an integral role in current systems of oppression and have a responsibility to use this influence of the designed world to design and build for equity. Join the BSA’s Race and Architecture series, focused on listening, learning, and engaging architects of color as we educate ourselves of the challenges at hand. The design of our communities and workplaces perpetuate racism in a series of obvious as well as inconspicuous ways; join us as we discover and discuss steps to create a just environment for all.

The moderated series will include a range of programs from stories about life as a Black architect to panels with public agencies, and more as we start to find not only answers, but the right questions.

Events will take place on the fourth Tuesday of every month.
