• A gendered Profession, the question of representation in placemaking

Harriss, Harriet, Morrow, Ruth, Brown, James and Soane, James, 2016, Book, A gendered Profession, the question of representation in placemaking RIBA Publications, London, UK. ISBN 9781859469972

Abstract or Description:

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. To do this, 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.
