#FutureArchitectFriday: Mustapha Williams
Hi readers! It’s #FutureArchitectFriday. A day to celebrate those pushing themselves to becoming licensed architects.
Professional Bachelor of Architecture from Univ of Tenn-Knoxville
How would you describe your experience as a Black Architecture student?
Why do you want to get your license?
In order to have the maximum impact on the built environment I believe that I need to obtain my architectural license. This way I hope to have the leverage and opportunities to do great and effective work throughout my career.
Black designers giving back to their people – designing spaces that work for them, not against them.
How important is representation?
Representation leads to diversity in work, diversity in communities served, and diversity in design solutions. If we only have people of a certain background designing for everyone ideas can become stagnant.
