The IAWA invites abstracts for the 2018 IAWA Symposium - Women Inventors in Architecture 1700-2000

Abstract Deadline: December 15, 2017

Selection announced: December 20, 2017

For centuries, women in architecture have been involved in pushing the boundaries of architecture and architectural practice. Whether as registered architects, members and leaders of architectural firms, academics and scholars, or in any of the less conventional capacities, women have helped transform the discipline of architecture and the related design fields shaping the built environment. The 2018 IAWA Symposium invites abstracts that address specific women or gendered natures of architectural invention. We welcome papers that tackle subjects or inventions generated between the years 1700-2000, and that are international or domestic in scope.

We seek papers that conceptualize architectural invention in its many guises, including (but not limited to) ideas, technology, form-making, modes of professional practice that present views into and histories of practices of women in architecture. We encourage abstracts that address how women’s practices have been expanded through invention, as well as how architectural practice has been expanded or impacted by inventions by women. 
Please email 300-word abstract and a one-page CV to: (subject heading: 2018 IAWA Symposium)
