Good News: Women in Architecture

The stories of women architects presented in this volume include the most important names of the recent past (Zaha Hadid, Cini Boeri, Lina Bo Bardi) and the present (Elizabeth Diller, Kazuyo Sejima, Grafton Architects). The cases here illustrate both the quality of the architecture, and the great variety of contexts and professional configurations these women work within (from heading large firms, to working alone or in collaboration, to being members of a collective). In the space of a few decades, the perception and culture of what an architect can be has evolved from the stereotype of “one man at the helm” to a far more complex and diversified range of possibilities: couples, collectives and teams of all kinds. But it is the ever-growing and ever-more influential presence of women that characterises the discipline in our time.
