Diversity Among Architects

  • In hopes of setting in motion conversations around why and how to build a more inclusive profession, Diversity Among Architects is a set of essays and lectures presented over a twenty-year span that challenges the homogeneity of architectural scholarship and practice. The edited collection covers a wide range of topics that have traditionally been the privy of an overwhelmingly white and male architectural culture only. The informative critiques and ruminations on such wide-ranging subjects as history, music, pedagogy, practice, aesthetics, urbanism, social justice, racial and spatial theory, as well as professional responsibility contained within are all penned from an African American perspective; a small but no less vital point of view that has been missing from the discipline for far too long.
