Shape the Conversation is a series of exhibits, events, and programs organized and produced by AIA Austin's Women in Architecture to recognize the far-reaching achievements of women architects in Texas and beyond. There will be three exhibits highlighting the work of women architects throughout the years, across the nation, and in Travis County:


1850 to the Future at 249 W. 2nd Street, originally shown and created by AIA Houston

Open every day from 11AM - 6PM. Free and open to the public.


Shaping Austin at 249 W. 2nd Street

Open every day from 11AM - 6PM. Free and open to the public.


National Outlook, Local Stories at Goldsmith Hall, UT School of Architecture

Open Monday - Friday from 8AM - 10PM. Free and open to the public.


Shape the Conversation will also include a number of lunchtime roundtable panels and happy hours hosted by women-led and local architecture firms.  

Our goals for these exhibits and programming are: to lend our voices to a conversation about inclusion and diversity in the profession; raise funds to support a Leadership Program at AIA Austin aimed at developing the next generation of engaged and diverse professionals; and to close the gap in the under-represented populations between School of Architecture graduates and those registered and leading the profession.


If you have any questions about Shape the Conversation, please call AIA Austin at 512-452-4332.
