Building emotional facts.
Inclusive and diverse narration.
Building Diversity is a non-profit organisation based in Copenhagen working for increased diverse and inclusive architectural fields and built environments.
Our community is comprised of future builders. People who are eager to expand the possibilities of collectively ensuring inclusive and diverse futures. It isn’t a quick fix or an easy task to broaden the narrative and invite new narrators.
