Graduate Architecture is pleased to host a book launch for Women [Re]Build: Stories, Polemics, Futures, edited by Associate Professor Franca Trubiano and Weitzman School alumnae Ramona Adlakha (MArch'18) and Ramune Bartuskaite (MArch'18).

Published by ORO Editions/AR+D, Women Re[Build] discusses contemporary, topical, and important subjects related to gender, architectural education, and practice. It includes original essays and four interviews/conversations with leading international practitioners, educators, and feminist scholars. The majority of contributions are in the nature of position statements and advocacy. While the voices are diverse, the overall tone is intentionally polemical and activist; the editors believe that such a book is much needed in our field today and that this sense of urgency distinguishes it from contemporary and previous publications by and about women architects.

The book includes contributions from Senior Lecturer Joan Ockman, Despina Stratigakos, Lori Brown, and Mary McLeod. It also features conversations and position statements from Miller Professor and Chair of Architecture Winka Dubbeldam, Inaugural Kanter Tritsch Medal Recipient Billie Tsien, Jeanne Gang, Graham Chair Professor of Architecture Marion Weiss, and Sadie Morgan.
