000off_WHAT_woman architect? ARCHITECTURE+WOMEN=NZ!


“2013 is the 120th Anniversary of women’s suffrage in New Zealand (the first country to give all women the right to vote), and together with the New Zealand Institute of Architects (NZIA) we have arranged for a full schedule of events which begins with a public lecture.” Lynda Simmons, co-founder ArchitectureWomeNZ.

So here’s the ‘WHAT_woman architect’ 5 minute, office crowd source brain storm… or perhaps NZIA should look beyond the present and into the future: Magda!? Natalia? Catarina? Beatrice? Adele? Eugenia? Adriana? Zuzanna? www.architecturewomen.org.nz
