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 world — Dr. Jane Hall (London), Dean Lesley Lokko (Spitzer), Professor Marta Gutman (Spitzer), Gugulethu Mthembu (GSA, Johannesburg), Mandy Shindler (GSA, Johannesburg), Dr. Huda Tayob (Johannesburg); Dean Harriet Harriss (Pratt Institute), and Associate Professor Meredith TenHoor (Pratt Institute) — will discuss the challenges, difficulties, and pleasures of being "difficult" women in architecture. Moderated by Lesley Lokko.
Refreshments will be served after the panel discussion, and signed copies of Breaking Ground will be on sale ($30 cash or check only).
Continuing Education Credit for registered New York architects is available.
