Join the GSA and Women Architecture Community in an evening of films, talks and discussions on the subject of women, gender and architecture. To celebrate Women’s Month and the GSA’s recent entry to the global Women-in-Architecture Film Competition, we will be showing our two short films, A Manifesto of Feminist Upheaval and The Master’s House, by Prof Lesley Lokko, Sumayya Vally, Dr Huda Tayob and Sarah de Villiers. Sumayya Vally, Dr Huda Tayob and Prof Lesley Lokko will chair the discussion. What importance does gender have in the design and shaping of the built environment? What does it mean to be a ‘female’ architect? What are the difficult questions around race, gender and class in South Africa’s architectural culture and community? Do women design differently? What are some of the more pressing questions around gender and identity at this time?
