Percent of Women
posted Jun 10, 2014 by mannda
According to the AIA 17% of all AIA members are female. Our Directory shows that 16.3% of African American architects are women - major progress in the last ten years. Still more to go.
The Directory of African American Architects is maintained as a public service
to promote an awareness of who African American architects are and where they are
located. The sole qualification for listing is licensure in one of the fifty US
jurisdictions and their territories.
If you are not presently listed please complete the PLEASE ADD ME

The Directory is sponsored by the Center for the Study of Practice at
the University of Cincinnati.

We are proud to announce that THE DIRECTORY OF AFRICAN AMERICAN ARCHITECTS has received a 2007 AIA Award for Collaborative Achievement. The Directory of African American Architects, established in 1991 by two faculty, Professor Bradford Grant, chair of Architecture at Hampton University, and Dennis Mann, Professor of Architecture at the University of Cincinnati, have garnered an Institute Honor for Collaborative Achievement for its success in advancing “the visibility, representation, and contributions of African-American architects,” in the words of its founding collaborators. The directory lists more than 1,500 African-American architects who practice in the private and public sectors, teach in higher education, or work outside the profession and still maintain licensure. The listing, with its series of highlight studies, continues to expand and now includes a Web site [http://blackarch.uc.edu] and a comparable listing of landscape architects. Noting the directory’s immediate usefulness, J. Max Bond Jr., FAIA, writes in support of the nomination: “The Directory’s existence helped give a presence to African-American architects. It helped people contact each other and thus helped to reinforce the creation of a community of Architects.”
