Advocating for Change Through Architecture

Fauzia Khanani is the founder of Studio For, an architecture and interiors firm based in NYC with global projects ranging from workplace to community-centered projects. She received her M.Arch from the University of California Berkeley and her previous career as a sociologist in public health continues to have a strong influence on how she approaches design. 

She is a founding member and currently Co-chair of the AIANY Social Science and Architecture Committee as well as a cofounder and Board Vice President of Design Advocates, a non-profit organization established in March 2020 for architects to share resources and collaborate on efforts to serve the public good through pro bono projects, research, and advocacy. She is a Core Organizer for the Design As Protest Collective, a group of anti-racist designers dedicated to Design Justice in the built environment.

The Graphisoft + EntreArchitect Partnership

I am excited to announce that Graphisoft is now an official partner of EntreArchitect and The EntreArchitect Community. I’ve been meeting with the Graphisoft team for months preparing for this partnership and I can confidently say that our friends at Graphisoft are fully committed to supporting our small firms… and our transition to Archicad and BIM.

Archicad BIM software enables design, collaboration, visualization, and project delivery – no matter the project size or complexity. With flexible licensing options, and a dedicated support team to guide us along the way, Archicad is an ideal choice for firms and projects of any size. That’s why I am personally committed to finally making the move to BIM myself, from CAD to Archicad. (I’ll share more on that as I progress.)

I encourage you to reach out and talk to the folks at Graphisoft today by visiting our own dedicated webpage at Graphisoft.com/us/EntreArchitect. There is even an exclusive special offer waiting for our community of architects. Go now to Graphisoft.com/us/EntreArchitect and see how Graphisoft is positioned to help make YOUR architecture firm a success. That’s Graphisoft.com/us/EntreArchitect.
