Join me for a screening
and discussion of ‘City Dreamers’
Like all female architects, and all women in general, I am a product of the women who paved the way before me. If it wasn’t for those pioneering women who set the stage for us to build cities and spaces that matter, I wouldn’t have the incredibly fulfilling career I have today.
Sometimes it takes a powerful message to make us realize just how much the contributions of prior generations have affected our own lives — and when I watched the trailer for the ‘City Dreamers’ film, I was profoundly affected by that precise realization.
‘City Dreamers’ brings four incredible female architects into the spotlight: Phyllis Lambert, Blanche Lemco van Ginkel, Cornelia Hahn Oberlander, and Denise Scott Brown. While they may not be household names outside the architect community, they have made a permanent mark on our modern cities.
I’m delighted that we will be screening ‘City Dreamers’ at The Screen at Midtown Campus (1600 St. Michaels Dr.) on Tuesday, November 12th at 7pm. Following the screening, I’ll be joined by fellow architects Suby Bowden and Chrissy Scarpitti for a discussion on the film and the amazing women whose stories it tells.
All are welcome to join us for an evening of exploring how these women played such an important role in steering us towards the dream of fundamentally human and inclusive cities.
I hope to see you there.
