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.

    —With deepest sympathy, highest recognition and gratitude—SAH Women in Architecture Affiliate Group


    Dear Pauline,

    From the beginnings of our SAH Women in Architecture affiliate group, you provided us with much-needed care and vital ideas, you advised our first steps, and we are utterly grateful for your encouragement. Most of us have known you for a longer time, and you have always been one of the most prolific faces of the Society, representing our mission, purpose, and vision for the future. During uncertain times, we learned with you “to accept the challenges that come your way and use them as opportunities to learn and grow.”

    You helped us organize and sustain our wonderful community of SAH scholars supporting the women’s cause in our discipline. Your impact has been deep and meaningful, and most of us did not know the SAH without you. Your dedication to students and early career architectural historians has been priceless to cultivate the next generation of researchers, leaders, and advocates in the field. You have always been an amazing support to all levels of the SAH community throughout the years.

    We will miss your open mind and your unwavering kindness. Your absence will be felt so much…
