Mafi, Nick. “Black Architects Who Have Shaped the World Around Us.” Architectural Digest. N.p., 17 Feb. 2017. Web. 27 Mar. 2017.
In this article Nick Mafi discussed and incorporated the talents of a few African American architects, and how they shaped the world around us. Not only that but how they are still being used to create bigger and better things today. He also includes in this article how all of the black architects that he names has all have had teachings that has related back to Africa culture and their buildings. The four major architects that he uses in his article are :David Adjaye, Diébédo Francis Kéré, Phil Freelonand Paul Williams. In each of his descriptions about each of these architects he talks about their major buildings and how they became inspired to do what they love. With this being stated, it is clear that each of them know the low entry of African Americans in this field, but they each feel it is important to make a contribution due to their background being of African American decent. This article helped me get a better understanding of who these people actually were and why they are doing it, with such a low entry of their culture in this field.
