Why do women architects still not receive the recognition their work deserves? Women in Architecture is a manifesto for the great achievements of women in architecture. The voices of thirty-six internationally active women architects are heard through their own projects. This diverse panorama is supplemented by essays on pioneering female architects, and analyses that get to the bottom of the structural discrimination against women architects.

As chairwoman of the Tübinger Kunstgeschichtliche Gesellschaft e.V., lecturer and associate member of the BDA, she has been responsible for the lecture series “Architecture Today” at the University of Tübingen for twenty years.
