Celebrando LatinX | Celebrating LatinX

The American Institute of Architects San Diego (AIA SD) presents a celebration of LatinX Heritage Month through the lens of art, culture and architectural design. We will feature a panel-led discussion examining our U.S./Mexico border and the positive impact art, culture, and architecture has on both communities.

These conversations are important to all of us living and working in our cross-border region, and we think you will enjoy hearing from diverse voices and perspectives from the design community. Recordings of these dynamic interviews, discussions, and conversations will be published and accessible for all to view at any time.

Conversations will be released daily starting September 15th. Visit the website to view them.
