Although more than half of all students in architecture faculties are now women, only very few manage to make the leap into the top ranks, where architecture is still a man’s world. Until March 8, 2018 the exhibition “Women Architects” elucidates the topic in 22 portraits, project examples and very personal stories of women in Germany who have significantly influenced architecture or are currently shaping it. The DAM Deutsches Architekturmuseum covers from the country’s first architecture studio in 1907 to architects working on the new post-reunification federal states.
