We’re less interested in making the next cool thing and more in the purpose and the people. We don’t build monuments to our egos,” says Susan Rodriguez, architect in New York.

Women tend to shun the masculine star cult. The most famous female architect of them all, and she brilliantly played along with this, was British-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid, who died before her time in 2016. One more reason to ask what current female architectural positions are? Do they even exist? What topics interest women architects today? We have invited 11 outstanding women architects to take part in the Jeanne D’ARCH symposium and debate five different aspects of the profession: Materials, Participation, Teaching, Role Models and Exhibitions.
