To mark International Women In Architecture Day - also known as #EthelDay, in honour of Ethel Charles, the first female architect to be admitted to the RIBA – this afternoon discussion will examine current women architects’ paths and experiences; and use those to develop a manifesto.
Hosted by Lorraine Farrelly, Head of Reading School of Architecture and chaired by Virginia Newman, RIBA Board member and Director of KSR Architects. a panel of women at varying stages in the profession will talk about how they got to where they are; and the advice and guidance they would give to the upcoming generation of women in architecture. Speakers include Sarah Castle of emerging practice IF_DO, who will show how ambitious strategic thinking and strict curation of publicity can lead to success. Subsequent discussion will shape the manifesto.
