#FutureArchitectFriday: Taylor Harvey

Hi readers! It’s #FutureArchitectFriday. A day to celebrate those pushing themselves to becoming licensed architects.

Name: Taylor Harvey

Hometown: Forestville, Maryland by way of Falls Church, VA

Educational Status: Undergraduate Senior at The Illustrious Morgan State University

How would you describe your experience as a Black Architecture student?

I would consider my experience as a Black Architecture Student as a rich experience. Morgan State University’s Architecture and Planning Program has given me a well-rounded experience. The only downside of my experience was not having a black woman professor; I did not have a black professor until I was a junior in the program.

Why do you want to get your licensed?

I want young women to know it is possible to be successful in a white male dominant profession. I want more representation in architecture, so I believe I must receive my license.

Biggest inspiration/influence?

The professors I’ve had throughout my matriculation through Morgan are my inspiration. The young women are also my inspiration.

How important is representation? 

Representation is extremely important I believe “If you can see her you can be her” and I want more girls to see successful architects, planners, and designers.

Favorite quote/poem/song/etc.?
