Building Design - Steven Spier

The collection raises critical issues for the discipline of architecture in a generous and provocative manner. It should be readby all of us.

Mark Cousins

FRancesca Hughes has gathered a collection of writings by women architects with cunning and tact. The diversity of the writings prevents any reductionist reading of the confrontation of architecture and gender, while the text establishes itself as an unavoidable place for architectural thought.

Elizabeth Grosz

A stunning new collection which provides a clear articulation of the profound gender crisis affecting architecture and its practices. These essays - written by the most respected and innovative names in contemporary architecture - interrogate what it is to be a woman architect, and what architecture would have to become for it to adequately accommodate women. It poses the crucial questions: what might be the terms for a critical feminist practice ina rchitecture as architect?
