Breaking Ground: Architecture by Women (Phaidon, 2019) is a timely record of the extraordinary contribution women architects have made to the profession. Documenting more than 200 significant buildings designed by women all over the world, this publication is a visual manifesto of outstanding architecture. Marking the celebration of this new book's release will be a panel discussion including Toshiko Mori, AR '76, Brigitte Shim, Hilary Sample, and Marion Weiss.
Dean Nader Tehrani will initiate the evening with a welcome address. The panel will be introduced and moderated by School of Architecture's Hayley Eber and Lorena del Rio.
This program is part of Archtober. Copies of Breaking Ground will be available for sale by The Strand. This event is co-sponsored by Phaidon, the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture of The Cooper Union, and the Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation.
