Women in Architecture

Much as we hate to say it, we are led to conclude that women often get a raw deal in their education in architecture school, and in their careers in architectural practice. You should also take a look at Part 2 of this article, in which we come to a very, very reluctant conclusion. Don't send us a nasty email about how we discourage women from entering architecture.

Most CAD businesses use a company-wide template that is updated from time to time.

" [Images: The "Bee Station" by Jamie Hutchison]. Animal Architecture thus "invites your critical and unpublished essays and projects to address how architecture can mediate and encourage multiple new ways of species learning and benefiting from each other—or as we say it here: to illustrate cospecies coshaping.
