  • Features the thoughts and projects of both accomplished academics and practicing professionals in the field
  • Rarely have so many women's voices, all of which are dedicated to enriching the practice of architecture, been collected in one publication. The book is focused on celebrating the work and wisdom of those who have succeeded in meeting both the daily and aspirational challenges and opportunities afforded by this most conservative of professions
  • The book's content was initially generated by a group of women architecture students who sought to answer questions important to them as young professionals entering into a discipline largely still dominated by outdated postwar corporate practices
Full Description

Women [Re]Build: Stories, Polemic, Futures is exemplary in its mission to combine in one resource reflections on the renewal of feminist thought in architecture (Framing Stories), challenges to practice made possible by activism (Shaping Polemics), and portrayals of inspiring practitioners who pave the way for future women architects (Building Futures). The goal of this book is to increase the visibility and voice of women who everyday challenge the definition and practice of architecture. Women [Re]Build gathers words and projects of leading women thinkers, activists, designers, and builders who have dared to ask, “where are the women?” Where are the women whose architectural work should be celebrated and recognised for its courage and impact; who have cultivated female leadership while challenging the very principles of the discipline they represent; and who ve asked the most difficult and rigorous of questions of those who build their visions?
