Norma Merrick Sklarek: Redefining Public explores the architecture of Sklarek, a seminal African-American practitioner whose design contributions and leadership manifest in various civic projects across the United States and abroad. As captured in the panel discussion themes of Authorship, Collaboration, and Leadership, Sklarek was a bold figure of “firsts” as she moved between scales of practice in various roles: from a project manager, to a collaborator and a mentor. The conference brings together multiple voices from Sklarek’s career—including colleagues, collaborators, and close friends—to cultivate further scholarship and discourse on both her career and the architectural discipline at large.  

Organized by Women in Design and Architecture (WDA) at Princeton University School of Architecture, this annual conference celebrates the work and legacy of a pivotal female architect or designer with contributions from international historians and scholars, in addition to artists, curators and practitioners.
