The quality of architecture correlates with the quality of life in our communities. Our practices need to mirror the communities in which we all work, and we need to work with all communities. At A’17, First Lady Michelle Obama challenged us to be mentors, and to set an example…
“You can’t be an architect, if you don’t know what an architect is, or what an architect does…”
Or words to that effect.
Our work begins in the K-12 curriculum. In making the cost of an architectural education affordable and accessible for anyone who dreams of being an architect. And in architects being at the table with civic leaders to bring resilient solutions to the schools, homes, businesses and places for play in every community.
