A visual and global chronicle of the triumphs, challenges, and impact of over 100 women in architecture, from early practitioners to contemporary leaders.


Marion Mahony Griffin passed the architectural licensure exam in 1898 and created exquisite drawings that buoyed the reputation of Frank Lloyd Wright. Her story is one of the many told in The Women Who Changed Architecture, which sets the record straight on the transformative impact women have made on architecture. With in-depth profiles and stunning images, this is the most comprehensive look at women in architecture around the world, from the nineteenth century to today. Discover contemporary leaders, like MacArthur Fellow Jeanne Gang, spearheading sustainable design initiatives, reimagining cities as equitable spaces, and directing architecture schools. An essential read for architecture students, architects, and anyone interested in how buildings are created and the history behind them.

Review Quotes:
"The book is a comprehensive collection of current and cutting-edge design, along with their historical precedents, and long overdue to have so many important contributors to architecture in one place. It should be on the bookshelf of every architect."
-- Spacing Magazine

Review Quotes:
"...a 336-page book that's as astounding as it is revealing."
-- Architects + Artisans

Review Quotes:
"The appeal of surveys like The Women Who Changed Architecture is that they can be dipped into at leisure and in no particular order, and they often yield surprises from the sheer volume of entries and the subject matter they focus on. Given my own exposure to far too many men in architecture, the surprises in this book are many, especially in the early chapters, when for every Lilly Reich, Natalie Griffin de Blois, and other familiar name there are as many new to me."

Review Quotes:
The Women Who Changed Architecture...gets to one of the major issues in design: Who ends up getting credit and recognition for their work, and how does that affect the way buildings and cities are designed? The book includes 122 women working in architecture from historic figures like Lina Bo Bardi to contemporary architects like Billie Tsien and Neri Oxman."
