In celebration of Women’s History Month, the National Building Museum features discussions with extraordinary women leading the field of architecture through the Women of Architecture lecture series. This year, Andrea Leers, FAIA, and Jane Weinzapfel, FAIA, discuss how their work intersects with urbanization, globalization, and sustainability. As a firm, Leers Weinzapfel Associates, the 2007 AIA Firm Award recipient, promotes social well-being and human interaction in buildings that blend the realms of public and private space and cross disciplines of architecture, urban design, landscape architecture, and infrastructure. Such buildings include the Paul S. Russell Museum of Medical History and Innovation at Massachusetts General Hospital, the Taunton Trial Court in Massachusetts, and the University of Pennsylvania Gateway Complex. A book signing of Leers's and Weinzapfel's book, Made to Measure: The Architecture of Leers Weinzapfel Associates(Princeton Architectural Press, 2011), will follow the talk.
