Being anti-racist is an everyday journey but Black History Month presents us with an opportunity to be challenged whilst celebrating black joy and creation.

In order to create true change through an inclusive and diverse profession we must begin with questioning our individual deep rooted, preconceived ideas and judgements first. The works starts within, only then we will see change across the whole profession. Only 1% of architects in the UK are black and it is all of our responsibilities to ensure that we do what we can to provide equal opportunities for all to excel and be celebrated in our profession.

Last week we planned and hosted a day of events in celebration of BHM, sharing the work of black creators who inspire our practice and discussing how we can truly contribute to building diversity within the architectural profession and in our studio.

The day concluded with us visiting a series of projects by one of our biggest inspirations, David Adjaye.

We would like to say a special thank you to all the black owned businesses, black creators and black communities who have a connection with our projects.
