In August 1975, Architectural Design magazine published a special edition about Women in Architecture. At the time, director Monica Pidgeon sent letters to 100 architects asking what women can contribute to architecture that men can’t (and vice-versa), as well as the advantages and disadvantages of being a woman in the profession. 

Now, 40 years later, a new version of the study aims to repeat Pidgeon’s initiative through an online survey with similar questions

The survey aims to find out what has changed today for women in the profession. 

Men and women can take the survey until February 24, 2016 and all of the answers will remain anonymous. A summary of the results will be published on March 8, 2016. 

Take the survey here.

Founded by the Architectural Association of London and based at the Polytechnic University of Valencia, the project is coordinated by architect Eva Alvarez, and includes researchers and architects from universities in several countries with the aim of examining and analyzing the current position of women in architecture.
