Female architects- Project focuses on industry pioneers
While architects these days come in either gender, it used to be rare for an architect to be female. As noted in today’s Durham Herald, George Smart, the founder and director of Triangle Modernist Houses, is working to profile female architects who broke new ground.
According to TMH, women now make up about 20% of the architectural field vs. only 1.2% from the 1940s through the 1970s.
