Review of the significant work being created by women architects from around the world.
"Sinopsis" puede pertenecer a otra edición de este libro.
Featuring 34 women architects working worldwide, this book opens with a summary of the work done by some of the best-known women architects in history and then provides capsule biographies of each contributor (except Victoria Meyers, who appears to have been inadvertently left out). Each entry includes a professional history, with selected awards and publications, a profile of the firm with which the architect was associated, and data on illustrated projects. Although there are few plans, most illustrations are adequate in size and sufficiently high-resolution, and generous captions explain the specific content of each. In addition, each architect was asked to make an introductory statement on her most challenging project design, but, unfortunately, the unedited responses consist mostly of opaque and platitudinous comments. The volume ends with contact details. Though in general the works presented here are indistinguishable from those of the contributors' male colleagues, the result is nevertheless a satisfying balance of theoretical and actual projects. The only comparable work, Clare Lorenz's Women in Architecture: A Contemporary Perspective (1990), is now over a decade old. Recommended for all architecture and design collections.
