Come celebrate the Diversity by Design exhibit at the Center for Architecture and Design highlighting the works of BIPOC designers, designers of all genders, LGBTQI + designer, designers with disabilities, immigrant designers and more.

Connect with our local community and professional allies for an in-person discussion on how we can encourage current and future generations to explore and manifest the power of diversity in their design careers centered within their communities.

This event will be hosted in-person by AIA Seattle’s Diversity RoundtableSeattle Architecture Foundation, and the Seattle Design Festival. The Diversity by Design exhibit is curated by the AIA Seattle Diversity Roundtable Committee and is part of a broader sustained effort to shift mindsets of the architectural field.
