B Arch Student Honored in Architecture Exhibit

Shereese Trumpet, a student in her final year of the Bachelor of Architecture program, is one of 20 distinguished minority architects and designers featured in the Say It Loud exhibition, which celebrates the creative work of members of the National Organization of Minority Architects, New York Coalition of Black Architects. Trumpet is the only student featured in the show.

Trumpet interviewed at nycobaNOMA and was asked questions about diversity in architecture. A recording of her answers is part of the exhibition, which highlights black, Hispanic, and Asian professionals across the United States. The display, at New York’s Center for Architecture, is on view until April 1.

A native of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Trumpet credits a College Now course in architecture for her love of the field and choice of City College. “It’s more competitive and hard to get into,” said the 22-year-old CCNY Honors Program member. “Everyone I spoke to said, when you get out of City College, people in the architecture field know that you’re equipped to design buildings.”

Her other accolades include the nycobaNOMA Diversity Award and the Center for Architecture Heritage Ball Scholarship in 2014. She was also one of six architecture students who designed and constructed a collapsible table for the Spitzer School’s Solar RoofPod.
