Celebrating Women in Architecture

Jane Hall’s latest book, Breaking Ground, is a visual survey of architecture designed by women from the early 20th century to the present day. Published by Phaidon, it is “a pioneering manifesto of more than 200 incredible buildings […] from all over the world.” To celebrate its publication, eight women architects from around the globe came together at SSA to join a panel discussion, moderated by Dean Lokko, in front of a packed house on March 3, 2020.
Panelists included: Dr. Jane Hall (London), Dean Lesley Lokko (Spitzer), Professor Marta Gutman (Spitzer), Gugulethu Mthembu (GSA, Johannesburg), Mandy Shindler (GSA, Johannesburg), Dean Harriet Harriss (Pratt Institute), and Associate Professor Meredith TenHoor (Pratt Institute).
