In many parts of the world, such as Brazil, more women have architectural degrees than men. However, this fact hasn’t translated past college into the working world as women continue to be underrepresented.
The conversation regarding women in architecture gained tremendous traction back in 2013 with the petition for Denise Scott Brown to be recognized as the 1991 Pritzker Prize winner, alongside her husband and the consequent rejection of that request by Pritzker. Since then, not only the role but also, the recognition of women in architecture has been the topic of international debates, lectures, symposiums, and exhibitions.
We, at ArchDaily know the important part we play in promoting conversations about gender equality. To that end, the issue of gender in architecture focuses primarily on women architects and often forgets the significance of the representation of architecture in the profession.
Here, we have compiled a list of professionals whose work is essential to communicate architecture representation, all the women behind lenses.
