The Women Who Changed Architecture (Princeton Architectural Press), is a beautiful volume that shares the life and work of 122 women who have made a great impact in and around architecture. We are delighted to host editor Jan Cigliano Hartman, in conversation with several fantastic female architects who have certainly made their mark in the profession and beyond!

The event will begin as a panel discussion and will conclude with a Q&A and a book signing. Thanks to a partnership with Porter Square Books, we will have copies of the book for sale during the event.

"An essential compendium of influential women designers from the late 19th century to today.... Accompanied by beautiful photos, this collection of biographies showcases the industrious and unique paths each woman forged to master their craft, even when credit was often given to their male partners or bosses."
