Women have been practicing architecture for over 135 years, yet little is known about their lives or their contributions to the profession. 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.
Join us at AIA Maryland for the unveiling of the exhibit based on this groundbreaking research. The exhibit uncovers the lives of twelve extraordinary women, including the first women to receive architectural registration in Washington, DC (Rose Greely, 1926) and in Maryland (Katherine Cutler Ficken, 1936). They practiced through the lean years of the Depression and World War II designing buildings in Maryland and across the country.
This exhibit would not be possible without the generous support of the Maryland Humanities Council; the Baltimore Architecture Foundation; Hord Coplan Macht; AECOM; Ayers Saint Gross; and MRI.
