Wikipedia Editathon: Women in Architecture

Wikipedia Editathon: Women in Architecture

In conjunction with Archtober and New York Archives Week, the Guggenheim will host its third Wikipedia edit-a-thon—or, #guggathon—to enhance articles related to women in architecture on Wikipedia, the world’s largest source of free knowledge.

Schedule of events:

12:00pm: A Petition for Justness: Women, Inclusion, and the Culture of Architecture
Peter B. Lewis Theater

· Presentation by Arielle Assouline-Lichten (Principal and Founding Partner at Slash Projects) and Caroline James (Associate, Maryann Thompson Architects), the Harvard Graduate School of Design students behind the petition to award Denise Scott Brown the 1991 Pritzker Architecture Prize. Arielle and Caroline will speak about the origins of the petition in reference to their personal histories as well as the changes related to parity in architecture that are currently underway.

1:00pm: Lunch

2:00pm: Pioneering Women in American Architecture
Peter B. Lewis Theater

· Panel discussion moderated by Mary McLeod, Professor of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, Columbia University, Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation; and Victoria Rosner, Senior Associate Dean of Academic Affairs and Adjunct Associate Professor of English and Comparative Literature, Columbia University.
