2022 Sho-Ping Chin Women's Leadership Summit Grant
University of Texas at Austin
Julie Trinh, AIA, NOMA, NCARB, is an architect for executive architecture firm, House & Robertson Architects, where she sustains fluency in a variety of languages: that of the designer, the engineer, the builder, and the client. These vast perspectives coincide with her determination to advocate for a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive setting in both the built environment and the workplace. Julie demonstrates leadership in her role as a Chair to the AIA Houston Chapter’s Women in Architecture: Equity Series and Women of Color Steering Committee, and consistently extends opportunities to collaborate with missions established by organizations such as NOMA and the AIAH JE:DI Collective. She also facilitates conversations as a moderator for the Women Architects’ Collective forum and serves on the NCARB committee for development of the Architect Registration Examination (ARE) with the intent to reduce barriers to candidate licensure. Outside of architecture, Julie is an alumni of The University of Texas at Austin, a Terry Foundation Scholar, and Gates Millennium Scholar. She is often sighted reading non-fiction, rubbing her rescue corgi’s belly, or folding an endless pile of laundry.
