Carolyn Armenta Davis, Hon. AIA, is an international architectural historian, lecturer, critic, curator and writer focusing on contemporary African-American, Afro-Latino, Afri-European and African architects. In this lecture, she takes a look at those architects and observes the diverse cultures, politics, economics, geographies and histories that inform their designs. Davis has spoken in over 35 cities worldwide. Her writings have been published globally and she has served on numerous local, national and international design juries. Her seminal work, Design Diaspora: Black Architects and International Architecture 1970-1990™, was the first to show contemporary built designs in the post-civil rights and de-colonization era.
