Designing, serving, and reflecting society at large
The American Institute of Architects believes that a diverse profession mirrors the society it serves. We celebrate the contributions of all architects, recognizing that diversity encourages fresh approaches and perspectives to guide the profession through an ever-changing world.
This exhibit highlights those who pushed architecture in new directions—not only through their compelling design work, but also through their steadfast efforts to build a better society.
In 1992, the new AIA Diversity Task Force develops the “New Harmony Accords,” advancing the premise that the “organization commands strength in proportion to its inclusiveness.” (AIA Archives)
