#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.
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.
