Event description

Description

You are warmly invited to participate in a different kind of book launch - one that steps outside of binary distinctions.

A Gendered Profession brings together a comprehensive array of essays from a wide variety of experts in architectural education and practice, touching on issues such as LGBT, age, family status, and gender-biased awards.

We felt compelled to write this book because the issue of gender inequality in architecture has been part of the profession’s discourse for many years, yet the continuing gender imbalance in architectural education and practice remains a difficult subject. This book seeks to change that. It provides the first ever attempt to move the debate about gender in architecture beyond the tradition of gender-segregated diagnostic or critical discourse on the debate towards something more propositional, actionable and transformative.

We very much look forward to welcoming you.

Discounted copies of the book will be available on the night - access via Darwin Building Reception on Jay Mews - following signs to the Art Bar (students union) on the 2nd floor.
