Within the architectural profession women are increasingly coming to the fore. To what extent will this shift in relations affect the profession as well as its teaching and therefore its structures, objectives and dialogic content? What is architecture when gender-specific strategies are overcome in the name of complex differentiation? What potential does the approaching paradigm shift hold?

Well-known international female architects report their academic and professional experiences and their visions for the future. Pioneers of the scene, lecturers, and young up-and-coming women have their say. They all hold controversial positions on relevant topics of debate; they demand that matters be rethought. Photo essays and designs illustrate their individual points of view. This is a reference book, a “tool” for the everyday application of young architects; inspiring, optimistic, and sometimes subversive.

Fallow City Project is an intervention in the typical fabric of suburbia, in the monoculture of private spaces and cultivated dreams. Taking the current crisis of the suburbs as a chance, and the most extreme situation of Detroit as its site, the project aims to develop new scenarios and new typologies of structures for the emerging fallow cityscapes. The interventions propose more playful and public ways of using or mis-using the suburban forms.

Opening | November 13th, 2011 – 7:00pm
Gallery Hours| Thursday 1–8 p.m. & Friday-Sunday 1–6 p.m.
