Join us for the exhibition opening of BxW NYC
Built by Women (BxW) is a social and educational initiative, celebrating women’s contributions to the built environment. In addition to recognizing and supporting the diverse women working in these professions, BxW provides both current professionals and students strong role models and mentors.
Last fall, the Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation (BWAF) launched a public competition for submissions of women-built sites. 98 diverse sites, designed, engineered, or constructed by women, reflecting strong design, have historical or cultural significance, or demonstrate substantial social or community impact, were selected by a jury representing the architectural, engineering, and construction professions.
By profiling and visually mapping women’s work across the US, starting with NYC, BxW raises awareness about the spaces where we live, work, and play. BxW produces educational materials, pop-up exhibitions and panel discussions, walking tours, activity books, merchandise, and more.
This event will kickstart a month-long BxW NYC exhibition at the Center for Architecture during Women’s History Month, with the support of the Women in Architecture committee of the AIA New York Chapter.
Organized by: the Center for Architecture and the AIANY Women in Architecture Committee
Funding for BxW NYC came from the New York Building Foundation and the New York Council for the Humanities.
