MAXXI museum Celebrates Female Architects with “Good News” Exhibition

Archdaily reports on the Good News. Women in Architecture exhibition, which opened in December and runs until 11 September 2022 at the Rome National Museum of 21st Century Arts: “The exhibition aims to document ‘the anthropological change of the architectural profession from the twentieth-century stereotype of the charismatic grandmaster to the growing presence of women, collectives and studio couples.’ From Signe Hornborg, the first woman who graduated in architecture in 1890, to Norma Merrick Sklarek, the first African American architect, to Zaha Hadid, the first woman to receive the Pritzker Prize in 2004, the Stories section of the exhibition acknowledges the pivotal characters in the history of women in architecture. Through drawings, models, and site-specific installations, the Practice section presents the work of eleven distinguished contemporary architects: Elizabeth Diller, Dorte Mandrup, Mariam Kamara, Anupama Kundoo, Yvonne Farrel and Shelley McNamara, Lina Ghotmeh, Jeanne Gang, Kazuyo Sejima, Benedetta Tagliabue, Lu Wenyu and the Assemble multidisciplinary collective. Together, they showcase the increasing presence and mark of women in architecture.” (read the complete article online)
