The Chicago Architecture Foundation is pleased to partner with Chicago Women in Architecture (CWA) for its 40th anniversary by hosting a special exhibition, Women Building Change: Chicago Women in Architecture Celebrates 40 Years. The exhibition is both a historical retrospective, and a modern reflection, on the process of design and the changing roles of women in architecture. It will focus on the design process, people and the profession of architecture, and highlight the impact of CWA members through Chicago case studies. Themes including process and profession, pursuing equality, building community, creating home and preserving significance will shed light on the work of women in the organization. Visitors to the exhibition will also have the opportunity to see the range of architectural drawings, photos and documents created in the design of a building.
