Abstract :
In a collection of autobiographical essays in which practice is both the site and the vehicle for change, 12 American and European women architects reflect on the nature of critical practice and its relation to architecture. The authors encompass a range of architectural practices: from the intersection of theory and philosophy to the union of building process and industry. Together, they present a compelling critique of architectural culture. All show a willingness to transgress the various mediums and territories of architecture, to recover and reopen certain discussions lost in the architectural discourse they have inherited. As a whole, the authors argue that women architects - insiders by their education and their adoption by and of certain professional institutions, and outsiders by their difference, their gender-related experience - are ideally placed to critique architecture and to challenge certain widely held assumptions about the built and unbuilt environment. Authors: Beatriz Colomina, Martine de Maeseneer, Françoise Hélène Jourda, Elizabeth Diller, Dagmar Richter, Nasrine Seraji-Bozorgzad, Catherine Ingraham, Christine Hawley, Merrill Elam, Diana Agrest, Margrét Hardardóttir, and Jennifer Bloomer. Colomina's contribution addresses Eileen Gray's Villa E-1027 at Roquebrune-Cap-Martin and the murals added to the building by Le Corbusier. ;
