2022 Design For Dignity (VIDEO)

STORIES: The AIDS Monument was featured at the Design For Dignity conference, sponsored by the Los Angeles chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIALA), in July 2022. FAM Board Members Mark Lehman and Rogerio Carvalheiro, as well as the designer of The Monument, Daniel Tobin of UAP, led the discussion.

Watch the video of this Zoom event to hear about the meaning of The AIDS Monument project, how it will serve its community, and how it will address larger issues of discrimination, equity, diversity, and inclusion.

AIALA’s Design For Dignity conference is held annually to highlight best-practices and pay tribute to the architects, contractors, housing developers, and clients of the American Institute of Architects.  “West Hollywood AIDS Monument” was one in a series of panel discussions and presentations that AIALA is presenting at its conference to highlight successful programs, initiatives, and design innovations.

The Foundation for the AIDS Monument is comprised of volunteer Board members who share a passion for ensuring that the history of the AIDS epidemic, both locally and nationally, is chronicled and preserved for younger generations.

The Monument, which is being constructed in West Hollywood Park, will be a place where you can remember, reflect and hear stories of how HIV and AIDS affected people, families and communities in Los Angeles, the United States and all over the world.
