New research into race in UK architecture

A new research community exploring racial equity in UK architecture is aiming to create an industry Charter and approach to help address race and systemic racism in architecture.

Black in Architecture, hosted by Oxford Brookes University this academic year, will capture the experiences of architects and architecture students who identify as Black or Black British, amplifying their voices through public events, workshops and exhibitions.

Founded in Summer 2020 after the murder of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter protests, Black in Architecture aims to work directly with practitioners, academics, students, architecture groups and organisations to gain a comprehensive understanding of the issues relating to diversity in the profession.
