In celebration of World Architecture Month and Hispanic History Month, we share the exciting news that AIA New Jersey and Architects League of Northern New Jersey Member, Delly Yaker, AIA, has Co-Authored a new book, “City Shapers – Stories of Immigrant Designers,” an Amazon #1 Best Seller in Individual Architect and Firms E-Books.
The Immigrant Architects Coalition was created by Graciela Carrillo, AIA, Shahad Sadeq, and Yu-Ngok Lo to create a community that offers mentorship, advice, and valuable resources to our fellow immigrant designers/architects. This book is the first step in achieving that mission. Twenty-four immigrant professionals share their experiences as firm owners, American Institute of Architects leaders, and entrepreneurs. The stories shared in this book portray a common path in their journey to achieve a successful and meaningful career in the U.S.
