Trailblazing Women Architects: Celebrating Women's History Month
March 23, 2019
Matt Postal will lead this Municipal Art Society walking tour highlighting the varied contributions made by pioneering women architects, designers, critics, and curators. Memorable examples of mid-20th-century modernism will be considered, paying particular attention to the sometimes overlooked roles played by women, from Florence Knoll (1917–2019) and Eleanor Le Maire (1928–1970) to Elizabeth Mock (1911–1998) and Ada Louise Huxtable (1921–2013). Major buildings by SOM will be discussed, including several projects where women, including Patricia Swan (1924–2012) and Natalie de Blois (1921–2013), acted as lead architect.
