About the Exhibition

“Not Now, But Right Now” is an exhibition of recent projects by members of the Southern California Chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architects (SoCalNOMA). SoCalNOMA’s mission is to increase the diversity, equity, and inclusion of the architecture profession, to support our members to amplify their voices and expand their connections to the Southern California community at large, and to increase the pipeline of diverse architects entering the profession in the future.

The works in the exhibition represent a sampling of the tremendous contributions of minority architects and designers to the built environment here in Los Angeles and beyond. Works presented encompass designs of all scales from single family residential, to commercial, and urban planning. The installation includes projects from 30+ SoCalNOMA members, projects from student members from local architecture schools, and “future architects” that have participated in the SoCalNOMA project pipeline summer camp.

The exhibition will remain on display from December 2nd through the 17th with the gallery open to the public from 2:00 to 6:00 PM Wednesday to Sunday each week.
