This volume celebrates 33 extraordinary contemporary women architects whose work is representative of a rich variety of styles and a wide range of intellectual and social concerns. The dramatic color and b&w illustrations demonstrate the idea that women are just as likely as men to have the five necessary key skills for success design competence, the ability to listen to and understand the needs of the client, to work with a large number of people with different skills, to present an authoritative and confident approach, and to negotiate with planners, site workers, and so on. Accompanying a photograph and personal statement of each architect is her professional history, firm profile, design statement, and illustrated projects. Edited by Toy, executive editor of Architectural Design . Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
