Women in Architecture
From History to Future
With texts by Dirk Boll, Sol Camacho, Beatriz Colomina, Odile Decq, Patrik Schumacher und Ernst Seidl
Why do women architects still not receive the recognition their work deserves? Women in Architecture is a manifesto for the great achievements of women in architecture. The voices of thirty-six internationally active women architects are heard through their own projects. This diverse panorama is supplemented by essays on pioneering female architects, and analyses that get to the bottom of the structural discrimination against women architects.

Im Comic schildert Mies van der Rohe seinem Enkel während eines Fluges zu dieser Baustelle sein Leben – ein intensives Leben, ehrgeizig und erfolgreich, aber von zwei Weltkriegen überschattet.
Photographer Jean Molitor has been tracing the heritage of the Bauhaus around the world since 2009. He started his “bau1haus” project in Africa, and has pursued it in 30 countries of Europe, Asia and Latin America.
He has found residential blocks, cinemas, schools housing estates, theatres, villas, hospitals, petrol stations and industrial buildings, in the larger cities and in the middle of nowhere. With his pictures he underlines the global connections of the Bauhaus and shows how much of an impact it had – and in some respects still has – around the world.
