Within architecture women are increasingly coming to the fore within the profession. To what extent will this shift in relations affect the profession as well as its teaching and therefore its structures,objectives and dialogic content? What is architecture when gender-specific strategies are overcome in the name of complex differentiation? What potential does the approaching paradigm shift hold? Well-known international female architects report their academic and professional experiences and their visions for the future. Pioneers of the scene, lecturers, and young upand-coming women have their say. They all hold controversial positions on relevant topics of debate; they demand that matters be rethought. Photo essays and designs illustrate their individual points of view. This is a reference book, a “tool” for the everyday application of young architects; inspiring, optimistic, and sometimes subversive.
