Pioneering Women in American Architecture
Over the past several years, Despina Stratigakos, Professor of Architecture and Kelly Hayes McAlonie, Director of the UB Capital Planning Group, have been involved in a major research project undertaken by the Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation, with funding from the NEA, culminating in a website and soon to be published in book form.
“Pioneering Women in American Architecture” is a collection of profiles of fifty women who have made important contributions to American architecture. All of these women were born before 1940, at a time when women struggled both to be allowed entrance into the architectural profession and to be recognized for their work. As such, the names of many of these women are not well known, even among architectural historians." Mary McLeod and Victoria Rosner, Co-directors, Columbia University.
Despina Stratigakos and Kelly Hayes McAlonie both contributed profiles for the site.
