Building Up Black Design Futures

Our Story

BAIDA believes in the future of Black Architecture and Interior Design. We work collaboratively to create and cultivate opportunities that transform industries, communities, and society. We are dedicated to radically changing and building up Black representation in the Canadian built environment.

Our Mission

We connect newcomers and professionals at all career and academic levels with access to resources and experiences that form lasting relationships.

"I showed up to one of the BAIDA events, and very much felt seen, that was the first time that I have had the opportunity to be in one place with individuals with whom I shared similar experiences, Black individuals working in the design environment."
