Regarding Paul R. Williams is a photographic exploration of the work of the first Black member of the American Institute of Architects. Known as the “architect to the stars,” Paul Revere Williams was a Los Angeles native who built a wildly successful architectural practice decades before the Civil Rights Movement. He designed municipal buildings and private homes as well as banks, churches, hospitals, and university halls. He designed public housing projects and mansions for celebrities like Frank Sinatra and Lucille Ball. In 2017, nearly forty years after his death, he became the first black recipient of the AIA Gold Medal.
