Diversity by Design

Diversity by Design: Equity in Architecture showcases seven Northwest Regional projects submitted to Diversity Roundtable’s open call to celebrate the work of underrepresented designers. Despite people of color making up a majority of early career unlicensed designers, only a small percentage of licensed architects are people of color. Additionally, people of color are consistently unrepresented in leadership roles.

Diversity by Design offers an opportunity for underrepresented architects to showcase their work, specifically highlighting the experience and impact community involvement has on the architect of color, the design of the building, and the community in which the building resides.

The projects and project teams featured in Diversity by Design reflect the inclusive spirit that has energized Diversity Roundtable since its origins in 1986. The AIA Diversity Roundtable (DRT) is a group that elevates, inspires and empowers individuals of underrepresented backgrounds in the profession of architecture through scholarship, community service, and activism.

This exhibit is showcased both in an online exhibit and at the Center for Architecture & Design (by appointment only). RSVP Here.
