WEISS/MANFREDI'S STATEMENT ON RACIAL INJUSTICE
JUNE 18, 2020- The revelations of injustice in communities across our country have sparked a movement of protest and reflection that we hope will begin to change the pervasive structures of racism in our society. As we stand in solidarity with the diverse voices of protest, we also reflect on our responsibilities as architects, as educators, and as leaders of a firm committed to creating open and equitable buildings and public spaces. Weiss/Manfredi believes that design can diminish barriers and strengthen connections between diverse communities and between the public and private institutions that support them. Now more than ever, we must look inward, reach outward, and embrace our responsibility for designing spaces that foster equity and support enduring bonds between diverse communities.
