Oculus Book Talk: "Where Are the Women Architects?"


When: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM TUESDAY, APRIL 19

Where: At The Center   

Join us at the Center for Architecture for a discussion with Despina Stratigakos about her book, Where Are the Women Architects? Following her presentation, Stratigakos will discuss the themes of her book with Lori Brown and Joan Blumenfeld
In recent decades, the number of women in architecture school has risen dramatically. Yet the number of practicing women architects remains low. Where Are the Women Architects? explores how a new generation of activists is fighting back, grabbing headlines, and building coalitions to bring about change while examining the past, current, and potential future roles of women in the profession. Where are the Woman Architects? is the inaugural title in the Places Book Series, a collaboration between Places Journal and Princeton University Press 
Despina Stratigakos, Associate Professor and Interim Chair of Architecture University at Buffalo, State University of New York
