International Women in Architecture Survey
February 3, 2016
An international survey is being conducted by Eva Alvarez to explore what has changed for women in architecture over the last 40 years. It has been 40 years since Architectural Design published the August 1975 issue on Women in Architecture. The editor, Monica Pidgeon, sent letters out to 100 women architects asking them: what can women contribute that men can’t (and vice versa) and what are the advantages or a disadvantages of being a woman in architecture. We want to know what has changed for women by asking a few simple questions. The survey should not take more than 10 minutes to answer. There are still not enough women in architecture and your help in responding to this survey will help gain a greater understanding of the issues. Your responses will be taken in total confidence and remain anonymous.
The survey is available in six languages and will provide an update on the 1975 special issue of AD on Women in Architecture.
You can take the survey on the Women and Architecture website. We encourage everyone to contribute.
