Odile Decq has won the 2016 Jane Drew Prize as part of the Architectural Review's (AR) annual Women in Architecture Awards. Co-founder of Studio Odile Decq, the French architect was awarded for being a "a creative powerhouse, spirited breaker of rules and advocate of equality." Her diverse portfolio ranges from art galleries and museums, to social housing and infrastructure. She is best known for the Cargo incubator building in Paris and the Fangshan Tangshan National Geopark Museum in Nanjing, China.

"The Jane Drew Prize recognizes an architectural designer who through their work and commitment to design excellence has raised the profile of women in architecture. The prize is named after the great Jane Drew, who was a spirited advocate for women in a male-dominated profession," says AR.

Decq is the fifth recipient of the prize. Previous winners include Grafton Architects co-founders Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara (2015), Kathryn Findlay (2014), Eva Jiricná (2013), Zaha Hadid (2012).

Decq will speak at the annual Women in Architecture Awards luncheon on Friday, March 4 at Claridge’s. You can learn more about the event, here.
