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.
