Lecturer Carolyn Armenta Davis shines a rare spotlight on three of today’s Black-owned architectural firms in Germany, two in Berlin and one in Hannover. Highlighted are built designs and "paper" architecture for Germany and countries in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. Also examined are the varying cultural, economical, and ecological landscapes of their innovative and award-winning designs. Davis is an international architectural historian, curator, and writer focusing on contemporary African/Black diaspora architects.
