Selected Thursdays 2022, 15:45 – 17:30 | ETH Zürich, Hönggerberg, HPT C 103.
This seminar sets out to make a correction to the existing, male-dominated histories and theories of urban design by fully acknowledging the contributions of female professionals (architects, politicians, urban designers, journalists, editors, curators, philanthropists, etc.). Input lectures that focus on the work and life of a series of female protagonists who started to critically engage in discussions on urban design and actively
contributed to the design of cities in the post-war era will be open to the public.
