Speakers

Jack Travis, FAIA NOMAC
Jack Travis, FAIA NOMAC is an African American interior designer, architect, author, and educator based in Harlem, New York City. His practice explores Afri-culture in architectural expression and the dynamics of how people in black and other underserved communities use space and react to formal expression. Jack is devoted to the education of cultural dynamics in architecture and believes that assimilation into the prevailing architectural
discourse ignores the wonderful differences between cultures and the challenges that many communities face.

Diverse Design
Diverse Design at PennDesign, University of Pennsylvania is a student group dedicated to enriching the diversity of perspectives of potential and practicing designers. Kordae Henry of Mass Design Group, also a Morgan State and UPenn alumnus, is joined by current members of the group who are actively engaged in seeking new perspectives on combating inequality in the design profession and the built environment.
