Iconic buildings commissioned by women.

The contribution of women to 20th-century modernism still receives relatively little attention. The male architects are still in the limelight, while the achievements of their female partners, colleagues, classmates, and clients are poorly researched.

This book fills an important gap in our understanding of the history of architecture from 1900 onward, and sheds new light on the women who commissioned numerous ambitious building projects from young avant-garde architects.

The authors Kerstin Bussmann and Ingrid de Becque present the results of their research for the first time in this book and recount the genesis of many iconic international buildings.



First comprehensive publication on iconic buildings commissioned by women
History of 20th-century Modernism with a new focus
Illustrated and easy to read scholarly documentation
Available in English and German language (Frauen bauen die Moderne, ISBN 9783035625424)
