Designing for Diversity: Gender, Race, and Ethnicity in the Architectural Profession

Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook


Providing hard data for trends that many perceive only vaguely and some deny altogether, Designing for Diversity reveals a profession rife with gender and racial discrimination and examines the aspects of architectural practice that hinder or support the full participation of women and persons of color. Given the traditional mismatch between diverse consumers and predominantly white male producers of the built environment, plus the shifting population balance toward communities of color, Anthony contends that improving the climate for nontraditional architects will do much to strengthen architecture as a profession. Practicing architects, managers of firms, students, and educators will learn how to create conditions more welcoming to a diversity of users as well as to designers.
