Austrian architecture is the theme of the new online meeting in “The Contribution of Women in Contemporary Architecture” series to be held on Thursday, 10th March, 6:00-8:00 pm, as a webinar and via Facebook Live
After the first six online meetings held in October 2020 – on the Swiss and Finnish examples –, in February 2021 – on the British and Danish examples – and in November 2022 – on the Spanish and Chilean examples –, the cycle continues with meetings on Austrian (10th March) and Canadian (24th March) architecture.
The initiative dedicated to contemporary architecture, realized by architects from different countries, is promoted by the Foundation of the Order of Architects of the Province of Milan and curated by the architect Arianna Callocchia. Its goal is to show the role and the importance of women in contemporary architecture, creating an opportunity for dialogue and professional exchange between the Italian and the international scene.
