As of 2023, there were approximately 121,603 registered architects in the United States. Women represent approximately 20% of licensed architects while Latinas represent 1.7%, a slight rise from less than 1% in 2021.

To create change, Alicia Ponce founded; a first of its kind national 501(c)3 organization designed to go above and beyond the 1% of licensed Latina architects in the US while creating equitable and inclusive opportunities in the design and building industry.

The success of the award-winning Latinas in Architecture Volume I, beckoned the stories in Volume II. Latinas in Architecture and our allies offers another glimpse to the Latina and Latino experience in architecture.

The stories have roots from the United States, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, Colombia, El Salvador, and Puerto Rico. Latinas and our allies have always worked hard, but we no longer put our heads down. While some immigrated to the US by free choice or by natural disaster or civil unrest, we hold our heads up high with relentless determination and spirit to succeed; to create architecture for everyone and by everyone.
