Learn more about how women were literally cut out of the architecture history pages, how the female gaze differs from the male one and how you can recognise it in the design of our cities and our landscapes. Learn about female friendly design, new visions on living and working, equity and inclusion. All lectures can be viewed below.
Madam Architect. More visibility for women in architecture Editor in chief Merel Pit (De Architect) and architects Nicole Maurer (Maurer United Architects) and Sandra Wigmans (SATIJNplus) talk about their experiences and practices and the need for a publication like Madam Architect.
Where are the women? Female architects in history Architecture historian Catja Edens talks about the scandalous treatment of women in the history books. Architects Teske van Royen (Artesk) and Evelien Pieters (AR-TUR) reflect on the situations in respectively the Netherlands and Flanders.
Mien Ruys. The female gaze in the city and in the landscape Biographer Leo den Dulk explores the life and work of landscape designer and theoretician Mien Ruys. Architects Gaby Vanhommerig (Mendum) and Lotte de Moor (Vullings de Moor) also project a specific gaze on their work and its contexts in the Limburgish landscape.
Femininity and inclusivity in the workspace Architects Nadine Nievergeld (Kalekt) and Tatjana de Grood-Trajkovska (TT-Architectuur) talk about equity and inclusivity in the world of architecture today. Only one in four Dutch architects is a woman, even though architecture programs at colleges and universities show a much better equilibrium.
Hartsuyker. Alternative living Curator at Het Nieuwe Instituut Eline de Graaf opens the archives of Luzia Hartsuyker-Curjel and her husband Enrico, who caused a radical wind to permeate the Dutch architecture scene after World War II. A delegation of young architects, Luca Simons (Artesk) and Omayra Mingels (SATIJNplus) join to discuss their own inspirations and ambitions.
We will publish a lecture every two weeks on this webpage and on our YouTube channel
