Round table “E contudo, elas movem-se…na arquitetura”


The roundtable em>E contudo, elas movem-se…na arquitetura it aims to give visibility to women architects, highlighting their pioneering spirit in the area and underlining the obstacles they have had (and continue to have) to overcome to be (re) known in the profession.

It was in 1890 that, for the first time, the degree of architect was awarded to a woman in the United States. In Portugal, we would have to wait until the 1940s for the first two women to graduate in architecture at Portuguese universities.

Patrícia Santos Pedrosa, Jorge Figueira and Joana Pestana Lage will be the invited speakers of this session. They will talk about the pioneering work of Maria José Marques da Silva, the second woman architect in Portugal, of the Women in Architecture Association and many other important contributions that prove that women, however, have moved. And after all, with them, also the world.

October 11, at 6:30 pm, at the Instituto Marques da Silva (FIMS).
