Opening | Wednesday, September 19, 5:30 PM

The Women in Architecture Student Organization* (WiASO) presents a celebration of historic and contemporary female architects and looks at architectural movements through a critical feminist perspective. Introducing women architects who have been marginalized, belittled, or denied credit for their work, the exhibition presents an inclusive counterpoint to the narrative of the architect as male. It also offers a glimpse of the culture of female architects at the University of Minnesota, one that architecture students learn about and contribute to daily.
*WiASO is a student organization that counteracts unconscious cultural bias within architecture schools and the profession of architecture.
