At our Architecture on Tap series this summer, we will re-imagine both the profession and our city through the lens of "Resiliency." The Women in Architecture Network, the Latinos in Architecture Network, and the Communities by Design Committee will each take on one of three sessions to discuss their own brand of resiliency.

In the July installment, LiA, with the help of NOMA, takes a creative spin on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, and brings the topic of "The Hierarchy of Needs: How Cultural Diversity Fits In".
A panel of speakers of diverse background and influence will gather and talk about how cultural diversity fits in to the process of designing and creating a resilient community. We will delve into "resiliency" as seen through the lenses of culture and architecture, specifically related to social impact, sustainability and economy.

Panelists:

Alejandra Aguirre (Public Affairs Consultant | Aguirre Solutions)
Darren L. James, FAIA (President of Fair Park First | President of KAI)
Derwin Broughton, AIA (Principal - Business Development | KAI)
