Females Dominate SF Public Works

This year is looking positive for women in the architectural field in San Francisco. As The Architect’s Newspaper reported, the city just sent out an RFQ to firms for its “as-needed work” list, a procedure which happens every three years.

This year, for the first time, all the preselected firms have female principals. The four firms include two independent practices, Paulett Taggart Architects, Hamilton + Aitken, and two joint ventures with small firms, Tom Elliot Fisch with Knapp Architects and Mark Cavagnero Associates with Cary Bernstein Architect.

“With the slate of architects this time, it looks like they are looking more for good design rather than tons of experience in the public sector,” said Paulett Taggart, who made the list for the second time in a row.

This is not only inspiring news for women, but its also great new for the city. San Francisco will largely benefit from over $4 million in projects which will be divided among the firms. Congratulations to the firms – we are looking forward to seeing your future projects.
