9783868590869: Architecture: A Woman’s Profession

In the western world, the number of women studying architecture now roughly equals that of men. As women increasingly come to the fore as practicing professionals, the question of how this shift will affect the profession and the teaching of the discipline is of greater and greater interest. In this volume, well-known female architects from the United States and Europe discuss their academic and professional experiences, as well as their visions for the future. Inspiring, optimistic, controversial and at times subversive, Architecture: A Woman's Profession unites pioneers in the field with up-and-comers: Barbara Bestor, Caroline Bos, Alison Brooks, Elke Delugan-Meissl, Jeanne Gang, Lisa Iwamoto, Sheila Kennedy, Regine Leibinger, Farshid Moussavi, Fuensanta Nieto, Monica Ponce de Leon, Mary-Ann Ray, Dagmar Richter, Denise Scott-Brown, Nasrine Seraji, Ingalill Wahlroos-Ritter and Jennifer Wolch. Photo essays and designs illustrate the contributors' discussions.

Book Description JOVIS Verlag, Germany, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: German,English . Brand New Book. What changes in teaching and practice, if any, are created by the increasing number of women entering the profession? Do the similar numbers of men and women students attending architectural schools in the west signal a gender-specific architecture?

Contributors include: Barbara Bestor, Caroline Bos, Alison Brooks, Elke Delugan-Meissl, Jeanne Gang, Lisa Iwamoto, Sheila Kennedy, Regine Leibinger, Farshid Moussavi, Fuensanta Nieto, Monica Ponce de Leon, Mary-Ann Ray, Dagmar Richter, Denise Scott- Brown, Nasrine Seraji, Ingalill Wahlroos-Ritter and Jennnifer Wolch.
