Slavimo 100 žena u arhitekturi

Celebrating 100 Women in architecture

Over the past decade, awareness of the need for gender balance in architecture has gained traction. Within the profession, women remain underrepresented, underpromoted and underpaid. In this latest publication from RIBA, women’s contribution to the built environment is rightly acknowledged and celebrated. 100 Women: Architects in Practice is a rich, diverse, and fascinating survey of exceptional women architects from around the world. 

Višestruko nagrađivani i vodeći glas u industriji profesor Harriet Harriss zajedno sa dugogodišnjim akademicima i piscima Naomi House i Monika Parrinder te višestruko nagrađivani arhitektonski novinar i urednik stranice Dezeen, Tom Ravenscroft, svi oni zajedno predstavljaju dosta zanemarene priče 100 žena – arhitektica koje trenutno ostavljaju svoj dubok trag u svijetu arhitekture.

Geographically balanced to feature architects across six continents from no less than 79 countries, from Argentina to Zimbabwe and everywhere in between. The book explores “the different worlds, different forms of architecture and the place-sensitive approaches” each architect has taken to fulfil their vision through a series of insightful profiles and inspiring imagery. Featuring a foreword by Alison Brooks, this highly anticipated book celebrates the most influential architects of our day. Among them are winners of the RIBA Royal Gold Medal and many other international awards, including Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara of Grafton Architects, Francine Houben of Mecanoo, Liz Diller, Farshid Moussavi, Anna Herringer, Momoyo Kaijima, Mariam Issoufou Kamara and Yasmeen Lari. The introduction identifies areas of common focus that seem to point a way forward: “practice innovation; care and connection; unpredictable participation; future place-making; equity.” The book shines a spotlight on leading practitioners from all across the globe. Each has the knowledge and talent to be a household name. This publication aims to play a small part in increasing their visibility by giving their contributions due recognition.

100 Women: Architects in Practice is scheduled for release on 1st January 2024. Pre-order your copy from RIBA Books
