Join the New York Chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architects (nycoba | NOMA), the J. Max Bond Center of City University of New York, and the AIANY Diversity and Inclusion Committee for the annual J. Max Bond Jr. Lecture. Established in 2010, this design talk honors the memory of J. Max Bond, Jr., FAIA, NOMA, an architect, partner at Davis Brody Bond, advocate, teacher, and trailblazer. The lecture addresses issues that were important to Bond, including equity, inclusive design, and global cultures, in particular Africa (Ghana).

This year’s lecture will focus on Bond’s legacy by exploring the intersectionality of inclusivity and community in architecture and design, with a focus on grassroots movements aimed at expanding access and equity in the design professions. Featured speakers will discuss their individual and organizational work to raise social awareness and encourage the active participation needed for increased equity in the architecture and design industries.
