Derwin Broughton, AIA | 2013 Young Architects Award
Derwin Broughton, AIA | Notes of Interest
Derwin Broughton is passionate about architecture, and he takes great pride and ownership in addressing the needs of emerging professionals as well as minorities and underrepresented groups. Derwin’s civic leadership began at a very early stage of his career, when he became actively engaged with causes and groups that work for effective, positive change. Three years out of college, he was appointed to the Bond Election Committee for a small community of 5,000 residents. This position opened doors to additional community involvement, which led to an appointment to the Board of Adjustments.
When he moved to Texas, he got involved in NOMA programs and rose through the ranks of the organization; he eventually became involved with the AIA’s Associates Committee and the Young Architects Forum. The successful “Arts and Apps” Emerging Professionals gathering at the 2011 Texas Architects Convention was instrumental in broadening its programming for emerging professionals. He is a man of strong convictions tempered by good judgment and reason.
