Advance Notice: Frau Architekt – Ausstellung DAM
Over 100 years ago for the first time women were allowed to visit “Technischen Hochschulen” in Germany and become trained architects. They made significant contributions to the development of architecture in the 20th and 21st Century often with innovative ideas and not infrequently against massive resistance. Like no other discipline, architecture has always been a male domain. Little has changed to this day. For some years, more women than men have been studying at the architectural “Hochschulen”. The trend is Europe-wide, in Germany with more than 53% the clearest. On the other hand, there are only 30.9% of woman among the architects working in the profession. Today, more woman than before become partners in offices, are university lecturers, … But these careers in don’t change much about the gender disagreement in architecture. The establishment of offices, the occupation of influential posts and professorships are still a matter of man’s business. The exhibition at “Deutsches Architekturmuseum” examines this phenomenon and shows historical and current developments.
