About Design by Diversity

Design by Diversity (DxD) is a committee under the ACLA umbrella that focuses on raising public awareness regarding the role of architectural design and creating outreach programs within student communities to develop a more diverse talent pipeline. Every year the DxD committee aims to highlight a renowned architecture figure in the Southern California region and hold a Block Party in their honor.

Design by Diversity Day: Overview
DxD hosted Paul Revere Williams Day Block Party on April 2, 2022, at the Los Angeles Trade Technical College Campus. The free all day event celebrated diversity in design professions and created a platform to provide support for Los Angeles youth interested in Architecture, Engineering and Construction to inspire a new generation to dream of designing the future. With various booth activities, mentoring sessions, keynote speakers and student competitions, the day was especially curated for students of all ages.
