As a black student coming into my final year, the article 'A Black and White Issue' (AJ 14.07.05) caused a pause for thought. But it is not really an issue which is surprising.
I have always wanted to be an architect and all I aspire to is to continue developing. Firms such as Adjaye/Associates and Amin Taha Architects show the ability and quality that black and minority ethnic architects can bring to the industry and I am sure they were not concerned about being a minority.
Studies like these could possibly put many off but I strive to break such stereotypical views and will continue striving. I hope when the time comes I am judged on ability and merit alone.
