About the Event
This series, hosted by Dr. Michael Crosbie, brings in experts from the fields of architecture and religion to reflect on the intersections of form, culture, and belief. This session on June 9th focuses on architecuture, religion, and race. For this session we will have a conversation with architect William Stanley III, FAIA, who will offer his wisdom on how Black identity and congregational history are expressed through sacred architecture, and how they build history, culture, community, hospitality, and inclusiveness into their church designs.
The practice of William J. Stanley, FAIA, and Ivenue Love-Stanley, FAIA, has been one of inclusiveness, hospitality, and connection to the community. This is especially true of their work with faith communities, which is how their practice started more than 35 years ago in Atlanta. Both have been recognized for their leadership in the profession; among their many honors they are both winners of the Whitney M. Young Jr. Award from the American Institute of Architects for the social import of their work, and the Distinguished Leadership Award from the Connecticut Architecture Foundation.
Looking ahead: The September session will feature race and mosques, and our December session will be announced soon.
