October 22, 2020

Women’s absence from accounts of American architectural history has been a longstanding problem. In 2017, Pioneering Women of American Architecture was launched with the goal of documenting and publicizing women’s contributions to the built environment in the United States. Project co-editors Mary McLeod and Victoria Rosner, together with contributor Michael Kubo speak about their work on this timely project and the challenges of writing women back into American architectural history.

Mary McLeod is a professor of architecture at Columbia University, where she teaches architecture history and theory.

Victoria Rosner is Dean of Academic Affairs at Columbia University School of General Studies and teaches in the Columbia University Department of English and Comparative Literature.

Michael Kubo is assistant professor of architectural history and theory at the Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture and Design, University of Houston.
