Izaskun Chinchilla is characteristic of a new generation of architects focusing on the connections between social and scientific thinking. While her practice and research range across a broad selection of socially and environmentally sensitive projects, they are consistently informed by a dedicated attention to “how a fully developed female mind-set can create new business, cultural, social and environmental opportunities.”

 

Join us to consider how architectural design practices can be used to empower women. Would an architecture that is more in tune with the needs of women be more beneficial for everyone? How can planning policy adapt to the fact that men and women use public space in different ways? Would embracing the aesthetics associated with women allow architecture engage a wider public?
