CHARLOTTE, N.C. (August 29, 2022) – Gābl Media, the first of its kind digital multimedia network dedicated to the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industries, today announced the addition of Hidden in Plain Site, an original podcast aimed at lifting the voices and elevating the careers of African American architects across the nation.

As little girls, hosts Saundra Little, FAIA, LEED AP, NOMA and Karen A.D. Burton, co-founder and CEO of SpaceLab Detroit, dreamed of becoming architects one day.  Historically, the work of African American architects has not been recognized at the same level or to the same extent as that of their peers—despite attaining the same education, experience, and credentials.  Noting the significant underrepresentation in the profession of architecture, Little and Burton created an award-winning project, Noir Design Parti, dedicated to documenting the careers and creative works of Detroit’s African American architects.  Join Little and Burton on a personal journey as they weave together stories from the careers and lives of notable African American architects and highlight the significant contributions such trailblazers have made to the profession and the community, making the invisible visible for all to see.

“We are very pleased to be adding this original podcast to our stellar network,” said Mark R. LePage, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Gābl Media.  “Hidden in Plain Site will hold important conversations about certain aspects of the history of the profession that have, in large part, gone unnoticed until now.”

“It’s always fascinating to learn about why a certain place is the way it is—who designed the physical landscape, who influenced its culture, its ultimate identity?” added Dimitrius J. Lynch, Chief Creative Officer and co-founder of Gābl Media.  “Saundra Little and Karen A.D. Burton do a great job bringing to the forefront those underrepresented and often overlooked architects who have shaped our cities and communities throughout history.”

Hidden in Plain Site joins Gābl Media’s current catalogue consisting of 12 podcasts and two video channels.  The company continues to work with thought leaders in the AEC industry to add to its platform and expand its library.
