her+ perspective: public participation project celebrating women+ in the built environment
her+ perspective is a public participation project focused on women+ in architecture and recovering notable contributions women+ have made to the built environment in the form of a growing digital timeline.
SAOTA is the proud partner of the her+ perspective exhibition at the upcoming Decorex Africa Reimagined conference in Johannesburg, 28-31 July at the Sandton Convention Centre. Pop in to make your mark on the timeline and experience Africa’s most exciting design expo.
her+ perspective’s aim is to continue to grow a database of women+ who have made a positive impact on the built environment, with a focus on the global south. The database builds on the original timeline exhibition held at the Cape Institute for Architecture that was initiated in 2019. Today that timeline is a globally accessible database, which challenges the under-representation, and often, misrepresentation of women in architecture.
The her+ perspective exhibition will showcase an interactive timeline of women in the built environment. Exhibitions and events seek to engage the public in dialogue concerning representation in the built environment and act as catalysts in recovering her+ stories.
