Gabrielle Bullock, one of the most influential champions of diversity and inclusion in the architecture profession worldwide, has earned the highest honor from the American Institute of Architect’s Los Angeles chapter (AIA LA): the 2022 Gold Medal.
“Being honored with the 2022 Gold Medal from the AIA LA has renewed my faith that excellence in the architecture profession goes beyond beautiful buildings to include a holistic contribution to building and uplifting community, creating a sense of belonging and addressing social justice and equity,” says Bullock. In addition to her leadership in our Los Angeles studio she holds the firmwide position of Director of Global Diversity for the firm, an industry-pioneering role she created in 2013.
“Gabrielle is a force in the architecture profession and someone I have looked up to my entire career,” says Kimberly Dowdell, a fellow trailblazer in architecture and the first Black woman to become president of the AIA. “She is so deserving of this recognition of her achievement as an architect, a leader, and a role model for others.”
