SAY IT LOUD exhibition has been invited to feature work by Women Architects and Designers of Texas.

 

In line with our mission to elevate the contributions of women architects and designers, we are inviting you to submit.

The SAY IT LOUD WIA Texas exhibit will debut at the 82nd Annual Texas Society of Architects (TxA) “Legacy” Conference + Design Expo in San Antonio, Texas this October 7 – 8, 2021. This year’s conference will be an in-person event.

 

In the year following the TxA Conference, the SAY IT LOUD WIA Texas exhibit will travel to participating AIA chapters where it will be featured in different cities, university campuses and locations throughout Texas.

 

To date, SAY IT LOUD exhibitions have been viewed by an estimate total 35,000 visitors since January 2017. From inception, multiple online publications (such as Forbes, Curbed and The Architects Newspaper) with large subscription bases have helped promote the exhibitions further expanding its impact. One featured firm expressed an increase in business which they attributed to being featured in SAY IT LOUD.

We strongly encourage submissions that reflect a broad and inclusive definition of design excellence. Each entry is judged for the success with which it has met its individual requirements.

Submissions should also reflect a strong sense of place, history, and purpose.

Architecture is a profession in which design capability is prized and intellectual property is the most common proof of worth, in terms of talent and experience. Contemporary practice is by its nature collaborative. The more complex the project, or the more prolonged the design and construction process, the more individuals may lay valid claim to credit for some part of the work.
