Early Women of Architecture Traveling Exhibit Schedule (2015-2016)


Women have been practicing architecture for over 135 years, yet little is known about their lives or their contributions to the profession. Here in Maryland, women have been practicing professionally for over 80 years. The Women in Architecture Committee (WIA) of AIABaltimore, in collaboration with the Baltimore Architecture Foundation and Morgan State University, has embarked on a project to assemble the stories of these early women who contributed to architecture in Maryland.

The traveling exhibit showcasing the stories of these incredible women and their work.
