Latinas in Architecture: Stories of raising the 1% one Latina at a time

  • $ 19.95

As of 2021, there were 121,997 registered architects in the United States. As women, we represent approximately 20% of Licensed Architects. As Latinas, we represent less than 1% in the United States.

In order to create change, Alicia Ponce founded Arquitina; a first of its kind leadership and licensure initiative to raise the 1%.

Latinas in Architecture is an anthology of compelling highs and lows -at times maddening- life stories of multicultural Latina women in the field of architecture. The women in this book are passionate about architecture and the built environment.

As young professionals, mothers and/or business owners, they proudly contribute to the profession as architects, engineers, planners, construction managers and sustainability professionals. Simply put, they are chingonas changing the demographic one Latina at a time.
