"Meaningful architecture must be a poetic expression of social justice."

— Gregory Henriquez

What are students saying?

“I really appreciated the workshop-format of the sessions. That format really seemed to tap the collective wisdom in the room and create an adaptive learning environment.”

“The size of the conference allowed great exposure to professionals and other attendees. The small scale made the conference more personable and therefore more productive than other conferences I have attended in the past.”

a forum for student leaders hoping to use design as a tool for social equity and positive change
