Women writing about architecture reading list

Each academic year, architecture and interior design students are issued reading lists that are largely dominated by male writers, leading them to assume that the key voices of authority within the discipline of architecture are male. This list seeks to partially address the problem by featuring women writers in architecture across a whole range of architecture-related subject areas: from planning to pedagogy, technology to professional practice. Its aim is to provide a useful resource to address reading list imbalances – for institutions, educators and students alike.

The lack of gender parity in architecture and interior design reading lists highlight the extent to which inequalities in the profession are being sustained and maintained by schools of architecture – both in terms of their staffing profiles and their curricula content.

For example, although one in three architectural educators in the UK are women, only 2.5% (1:40) of UK Architecture faculty is female at Dean level. In contrast, in the USA, one in four Deans of architecture are women. Dean appointments are made on the basis of an established body of reputable work, citations, and research. If fewer students know about the work of women, ultimately their work is ignored and they’re less likely to be considered for senior academic roles. Subsequently, the problem is endlessly perpetuated. The WOMEN WHO WRITE ARCHITECTURE reading list is therefore designed to address this imbalance.  It features over 300 women writers (so far), and readers of this blog are encouraged to propose other members through comments and direct messaging.

This will not only encourage more female students to feel equally represented within the profession of architecture, but it will hopefully encourage more of them to enter academia. Simultaneously, the careers of the many incredible women writers in architecture will be given more recognition for their work, and greater opportunities for professional advancement, including access to leadership roles. Put simply, architecture cannot serve the needs of a diverse society equally if its members do not reflect that diversity. Real change starts with a small change: I look forward to your comments and suggestions.
