“Past the Parapets of Patriarchy? Women, the Star System, and the Built Environment."
Atlantis: A Women’s Studies Journal 34, 1 (2009) 5-15.
This essay explores questions of gender, visibility, strategies and alternatives within the study and practice of women in architecture. What possibilities exist for the analysis and critique of architecture’s continuing gender bias? Incorporating a literature review and examining the profiles of a number of women architects in Canada and the United States, this essay creates a snapshot of the options for women within architectural practice today. It argues for an approach to architecture that does not only champion celebrated women architects, but also the ways in which collaborators and agitators work against and outside the fundamentally exclusive nature of architecture.
