Inhoud lezing

The lecture on “Building from a Feminist Perspective” will try to make clear what the ambitions of a Feminist Architecture might be. We will take a critical look at the intersection of present training and practice, and how women have struggled for professional recognition in the profession of architecture itself.

As women, we live in a world predominantly made by men; there are hidden ways in which women are forgotten in design. This in fact, has a profound impact on us all. We will take a step back and imagine and ask, what might a world designed by women be like?

We are now all examining the impact of climate change on our physical environment and our need to adapt. Jo hopes to show how a feminist perspective will help us all contribute, evaluate and create a better physical environment for us all now and in the future.

Jo will celebrate some current good practice, and look at some wonderful and inspiring, historical figures alongside modern emerging female designers, that together, call into question the convention that a woman’s place is in the home.

Jo will illustrate the points made above with pictures of her own work and buildings from other architects.

 

De spreker

Jo Barnett has over 20 years professional experience in architectural practice, in both the Netherlands (Berger Barnett Architects) and in the UK. This has always been combined with teaching, research and design advice. Her academic roles have included teaching at the Architectural Association among other UK Universities as well as the Academie van Bouwkunst, Amsterdam and at the Fontys University in Tilburg, and as an external examiner at Koninklijke Universiteit Leuven / Ghent.

Berger Barnett Architects, over the last few years, has developed a particular expertise in the delivery of pioneering public buildings in education and housing. As a practice they are interested in a sensitive and contextual approach to architecture that matches the needs of the buildings’ users with the surrounding community and urban conditions. They couple this with the optimal considerations in terms of long-term environmental sustainability. They have also been involved in the renovation of listed buildings in both the UK and the Netherlands.
