Architecture & Activism: Prof. Sharon Sutton












“Sharon Sutton is a trailblazer – the first African American woman to be promoted to full professor of architecture, the second to be elected a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, and the first to be appointed president of the National Architectural Accrediting Board. In a fascinating long-form interview with Sarah Akigbogun, Sharon reflects on action and rebellion in the 1960s, the poisonous effects of income inequality, and the urgent need for disruption in architecture schools today.”

Emeritus Professor Sharon Egretta Sutton was interviewed recently by Parlour, a research based advocacy organization working to improve gender equity in architecture and the built environment professions.  Click here for the complete interview.
