Craig L. Wilkins, an architect, historian, and professor, [is] a leading voice in the dialogue on architecture’s severe lack of diversity and has worked to increase scholarship on African American architects …

 

Wilkins’ writing, from 2007’s The Aesthetics of Equity: Notes on Race, Space, Architecture, and Music to his recent collection of 12 essays examining homogeneity in the profession,  Diversity Among Architects: From Margin to Center, are driving a long-overdue conversation on race, privilege, and class within architecture.

 

In 2017, a year dominated by the rise of nationalism, state-mandated xenophobia, and police brutality, architects are coming to terms with their responsibility to the public good – and Wilkins’ writing has never been more relevant.”
