The SAH Women in Architecture Affiliate Group (SAH WiA AG) is a Board-approved affiliate group of members of the Society of Architectural Historians who share a common, scholarly, or other, interest aligned with the SAH mission.
The Mission of SAH Women in Architecture Affiliate Group is to support the breadth of interests of SAH members, to advocate the international, national, and regional contributions of women in architecture, to champion the cause of gender equity and the diversity of professional engagements in the integral field of the built environment.
The Objectives of the Group are to provide a platform for collaborative scholarship and a forum for discussion; to document, support, and advance research, publication, education, and exhibition initiatives; and to integrate professional standing of women in architecture with broader studies across cultures and geographies.
The Guidelines are envisioned to acknowledge the vast landscapes of yet latent legacies, contexts, and perspectives, to record the largely unwritten women’s professional histories, to invite questions and debates, stimulate studies and discussions in emerging and bordering areas, and to address current work and the cultivation and empowerment of the next generation. The gravity of objectives for the group is determined by an urgency to fill the void in resources about women’s contribution to the built environment, leadership, and new trajectories of global transitions.

    Panel:  Inspired by History to Form the Future


    This panel supported by the Women in Architecture Affiliate Group of the Society of Architectural Historians, brings together speakers from across continents to discuss how the recent research has transformed the way we examine women’s contribution to the built environment, and how women who practice architecture around the world continue to change the face of our profession. Among the narratives that emerge from evaluations of historic gender roles in architecture and design are those reflecting on the guidelines employed by scholars. In seeking to uncover latent stories of exceptional records, historians are the first to question assumptions and alter conventional agendas. Our panelists address the gap between the critical misconceptions, recognize women’s past and present accomplishments and leadership, advocate and inspire new role models from diverse backgrounds and geographies.
