Join us for a week-long celebration of Indigenous architecture, planning, and design at Davies Toews Architecture presented by the Indigenous Society of Architecture, Planning, and Design (ISAPD) and partners. The intention of Indigenous Architecture Days is to inspire future generations, support current Indigenous designers, and gather together with professional, academic, and the greater creative community to celebrate nature-informed Indigenous architecture in the city.


At the heart of the Indigenous Architecture Days is the ISAPD Equinox House. The Equinox House is part of ISAPD’s year long First Future Project, supported by the Fulcrum Fund, a grant program of 516 ARTS made possible by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Frederick Hammersley Fund for the Arts at the Albuquerque Community Foundation. The intention of the Equinox House is to reawaken the relationship between people and natural cycles. The First Future Festival is a public celebration to recognize the fall equinox, experience the activation of the Equinox House, and see contributed community narratives come to life architecturally on September 23, 2023.


The Indigenous Architecture Days will further celebrate and expand on Indigenous architectural principles firmly rooted in the tracking of natural phenomena and celestial events. Architectural, landscape, environmental, planning, creative, and tribal community organizations and individuals will come together to share knowledge and present activities to ignite an interest in design informed by reciprocal connections with the natural environment.
