Working with the American Institute of Architects and the Octagon Museum, Valley House produced a complete gallery exhibition exploring diversity in architecture. Following the organization's strict design and copy guidelines, we wrote all the exhibit text, created panel layouts, and carefully photoedited more than 100 archival images. The show was divided into two key parts: the first looking at nearly 40 recipients of the AIA Whitney Young Jr. Award and the second highlighting key moments in the AIA's commitment to diversity. We created a large timeline wall display as well as a corresponding digital presentation.
Valley House also created a detailed companion website to offer a a deeper look at the subject with additional images, interviews, and video.
After an initial run at the Octagon Museum in Washington, DC, the exhibit was featured at the A'18 Conference on Architecture in New York City as well as at the AIA Portland/Oregon Center for Architecture, AIA San Francisco, and Howard University.
