INTRODUCTION

THE LIFE CYCLES OF WOMEN IN ARCHITECTURE

Leveraging this moment’s elevated awareness of the experiences of women in the workplace, and building on the collective action of multiple waves of women’s activism before us, we aim to create a space for dialogue. This initiative acknowledges and is motivated by the historical exclusion of women from the shaping of our environments and the minimizing of their contributions. The main objective is to provide a platform to ask what it means to be a woman in architecture, and through collaboration and exploration propose how it can be different.

OBJECTIVE

Rather than spotlighting the accomplishments of prominent individuals, WOMENWHODESIGN.ORG examines through storytelling the lived experience and contributions of the many. This platform asks what it means to be a woman in the broadly defined field of architecture, and through collaboration and exploration proposes how it can be different.


Why do women architects matter? How do career and human life cycles intersect, interfere and inform each other? What has been your experience as a woman in architecture? What obstacles have you overcome, or not? How are you living your vision for the future? We invite you to explore these questions and more...

Eligibility
This is a juried international exhibition and is open to groups or individuals at least 18 years old.* If the individual(s) is/are the sole principal(s) of a firm, the firm name must be listed as well.


*Submissions for individuals under 18years will be considered but will need tobe submitted by a parent or guardian.

Criteria
We are seeking a diverse selection of work relevant to the exhibition theme that will engage visitors of all ages and life experiences. Opportunities for public interaction are highly encouraged.


A survey will be distributed to members of professional organizations and made available to the general public. Like the exhibit, this survey will focus on stories more than data, documenting critical moments in the life cycle of women architects. Entrants may propose the inclusion of survey results in their work.

Location
San Francisco Bay Area, California, USA*
