“I Was Asked to Stand”: A lecture by Pascale Sablan
Pascale Sablan, FAIA, NOMA, LEED AP, is President-Elect of the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA). She is Associate at Adjaye Associates and the Founder and Executive Director of Beyond the Built Environment (BBE), an organization that addresses the inequitable disparities in architecture, promoting agency and advocating for equity in the profession. BBE elevates the identities and contributions of women and BIPOC designers through exhibitions, curated lectures, and documentaries that testify to the value of their built work and its spatial impact.
Pascale’s talk is the first in a series of lectures honoring the legacy of Jeh V. Johnson. Johnson co-founded the National Organization of Minority Architects in 1971, and he taught at Vassar for 37 years. His teaching and mentoring was formative for generations of young architects.
The Agnes Rindge Claflin Lecture Series is sponsored by the Department of Art, with support from the Dean of the Faculty.
