Join the New York Chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architects (nycoba | NOMA) and the AIANY Diversity & Inclusion Committee for the 2019 J. Max Bond Jr. Lecture. Established in 2010 as a joint collaboration, this is an annual design talk in memory of J. Max Bond, Jr., FAIA, NOMA, an architect, advocate, and teacher—a trailblazer of his time. This year, we are grateful for additional partnership with the J. Max Bond Center for Urban Futures. The Bond Lecture addresses issues that were important to Max Bond: equity, inclusive design, communities, and global cultures, in particular Africa (Ghana).

This year, our honored speaker is Zena Howard, a Principal and Managing Director of Perkins + Will North Carolina Practice. A graduate of University of Virginia, she was mentored by Phil Freelon. She is a design leader, strategist, educator, and mentor in the profession, and last year, she was elevated to the AIA College of Fellows. Zena Howard is well known for her role on the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC. She is also creating a legacy as a leader in the transformation of neighborhoods through community-engaged urban design practices. Her unique approach includes the conception of what she terms “Remembrance Projects,” which apply community engagement principles to infuse historical context into built work. Her work on urban futures aims to repair and renew communities of color damaged by ill-conceived urban renewal projects of recent decades. In our time of continued challenges to communities, including gentrification, disparities of resources, and imposed historical amnesia, we must look to Zena’s work for inspiration and guidance to build and to heal.

Speaker:
Zena K. Howard, FAIA, Principal, Perkins+Will
