The publication Women in Architecture fills the gap in your bookcase and gives space to underrepresented voices in architecture.
Women in Architecture sheds light on how women in all their different roles contribute to architecture, from the past to the present. Despite the essential and varied contributions of women, the narrative surrounding architecture remains deeply rooted in masculinity. Nonetheless, women have played crucial roles throughout architectural history. This publication sheds light on the reasons behind the absence of women in archives and publications, and how that exclusion continues to perpetuate the invisibility of women in architecture today. By bringing together these stories, the publication adds a crucial chapter to the history of architecture in the Netherlands and advocates for greater diversity in the current architectural discourse.
Women in Architecture is the first publication in the Documents and Histories series, a series that contributes to a more complete history. This publication is a first exploration of diversity in architecture and features contributions from several experts, including Catja Edens, who reflects on the various roles of women in architecture. Lara Schrijver's essay focuses on the need for collaboration rather than rivalry within design practice, while Indira van 't Klooster develops a vocabulary for multi-voiced analyses. Setareh Noorani provides insights into alternative and inclusive ways of archiving. Other contributors to this publication include Florencia Fernández Cardoso, Hilde Heynen, Rixt Hoekstra, Ellen van Kessel, María Novas Ferradás, Erica Smeets-Klokgieters, Fátima Pombo, Lidewij Tummers, and Linda Vlassenrood. The book also sheds light on the lives and work of Riné Boerée, Wilhelmina Jansen, Ada Kuiper-Struyk, Elisabeth de Lestrieux, Jacoba Mulder, Manon Peyrot, and Guus Schreuder-Gratama, who are often overlooked in architectural history.
