#FutureArchitectFriday: Kris Wells, NOMA
Hi readers! It’s #FutureArchitectFriday. A day to celebrate those pushing themselves to becoming licensed architects.
Recent graduate, M.Arch
How would you describe your experience
as a Black Architecture student?
I was intimated at first. I came to realize that architecture was a field of study that lacked people that looked like me. Eventually I overcame that intimation and used it as motivation.
Why do you want to get your license?
To prove to myself that I could do it. To be apart of the very few licensed African American architects and to hopefully inspire someone else.
How important is representation?
Having the proper representation and people to look up to can be the difference between going to jail and going to college.
I promise to build something that they can’t destroy.
