AIA New York: Design Leadership without Borders

The AIANY WIA continues the annual Women Design Leaders Series and is delighted to introduce four extraordinary international women architects who have all started their education in the US and have since achieved design accolades either in their native countries or adoptive countries. Please join us to learn about how their designs contribute to their communities, educate the next generation, advocate for equity, fight climate change, and improve the built environment. Above all, they will inspire us to look beyond our cities and encourage women design leaders to think about how to impact the world.

Thank you AIA New York Women in Architecture Committee for the invitation to share with these incredible women. It has been a pleasure getting to know you a little through the set-up calls. I can’t wait until I can come down and see you in person.

Is it just me or is the AIA logo sending off a strange vibe for these times….
