RIBA 100 Women: Architects in Practice

The recently published ’100 Women: Architects in Practice’ by the RIBA has included Kerstin on their list!!
The book celebrates and acknowledges a rich, diverse, and fascinating survey of exceptional women architects from around the world and their contributions to the built environment.


Multiple award winner and leading industry voice Professor Harriet Harriss, together with senior academics and writers Naomi House and Monika Parrinder and multi-award-winning architecture journalist and editor of Dezeen Tom Ravenscroft, showcase the largely overlooked stories of 100 women currently making their mark in the architectural world.

Geographically balanced to feature architects across six continents from no less than 79 countries, from Argentina to Zimbabwe and everywhere in between. The book explores “the different worlds, different forms of architecture and the place-sensitive approaches” each architect has taken to fulfil their vision through a series of insightful profiles and inspiring imagery.

With many thanks to the authors Harriet Harriss, Naomi House, Monika Parrinder, and Tom Ravenscroft

Parlour and KTA to kick-start the year with an invigorating conversation between three gold medallists in the KTA laneway!

Gather in KTA’s laneway for a prize-winning conversation about architecture, practice, equity and the direction of the profession, chaired by Justine Clark of Parlour

When: Thursday 8 February, 6–8pm
