Raising the Roof : Women Architects Who Broke Through the Glass Ceiling, Hardback Book

Raising the Roof : Women Architects Who Broke Through the Glass Ceiling Hardback

Hardback

Description

Historically, women architects were disappointingly absent in the news and at awards ceremonies, but now they are spearheading some of the most exciting and important projects in every corner of the globe.

These profiles of fifty female architects bring to light some of those projects and highlight pioneering women architects.

Each architect is introduced in double-page spreads that include a brief biography, an overview of her philosophy and vision, and stunning photographs of her most significant works.

Interviews with several of the architects provide a global perspective on how women are changing the face of the world-including feminist icon, philanthropist, and Nigerian "starchitect" Olajumoke Adenowo; Tatiana Bilbao, who is leading the way in sustainable Mexican architecture; Rossana Hu, who is fighting to preserve Chinese village culture in her rapidly urbanizing country; and Elizabeth Diller, who created the High Line, one of New York City's most beloved public spaces, and helped redesign the city's Museum of Modern Art.

This volume offers indisputable and inspiring evidence that the architectural profession is no longer just a man's game.
