arch_TECHA_ture x Racial Justice

So much work is needed.


Every one of us is responsible for shaping the society that we live in. The recent events in our country are evident of how much work is needed. Here at arch_TECHA_ture we are committed to solidarity with Black communities and we will do better.


We will share more resources to empower our readers to bring change and engage in deeper discussions on the history of inequality and racial discrimination at the intersection of information and technology in art, architecture, and design.


One of my favorite people, Ingallil Wahlroos-Ritter, Dean of the School of Architecture at Woodbury University shared these wise words:


"Words hold weight, but actions speak louder."

We are committed to taking action. To start, below are links to prominent writings and near-exhaustive lists of resources at the intersection of race and space. 


Black Landscape Matter by Kofi Boone in Ground Up


Black Lives Matter | Collection of Essays by Architectural Historians and Organized by Aggregate Architectural History Collaborative


Race and Architecture: Studying the Historical Intersection of Form and Culture | A Blog by Charles Davis


Race/Space Reading List | Extensive Crowd-sourced List started by Anna Maria Leon at the University of Michigan


But, we need to do more than just share links. I will be reading How to Be an Antiracist and sharing my thoughts on here while continuing to imagine how to use my platforms to bring much needed change.
