Curated by New York-based architect Pascale Sablan FAIA, NOMA, LEED AP, SAY IT LOUD elevates the work of BIPOC and women designers working in built environment fields. This juried exhibition features participants from the region where it travels to. Sablan, founder and executive director of Beyond the Built Environment, strives to increase representation in the field of design, which is quintessential to a mission that includes “…engaging community through architecture to advocate equitable, reflectively diverse environments.”

Sablan’s own journey in the field of architecture prompted her to tackle issues related to lack of representation, as well as the detrimental effects that misplaced architecture has on BIPOC communities. A strong advocate of betterment for everyone, she promotes the fact that greater diversity enriches all our lives. The exhibition features projects as well as biographical interviews with selected participants. GMD is delighted to be a stop on this international exhibition series, which has been seen by over 35,000 people since it began in 2017. Come join us! 

Participants include Kristine Anderson, Tammy Angaran, Abimbola Asojo, Alicia Belton, Tu-Anh Bui Johnson, Trevor Bullen, Nina Ebbighausen, James Garrett jr., Tasoulla Hadjiyanni, Damaris Hollingsworth, Karen Lu, Joy Martin, Jody McGuire, Celina Nelson, Jennifer Newsom, Heather Novak-Peterson, Mary Springer, and Lyssa Washington.
