Rewrite fragments of the mainstream architectural historiography by including women's contributions.

  • New areas of operation

Architectural and urban future faces a deep and necessary social and ecological transformation. Gender, sustainability and inclusion policies are urgently needed.
In this context, let us consider a fiction based on another socio-cultural and political paradigm far beyond the patriarchal system that has dominated our human history: a rewriting of that history in which 20th century women (designers, activists, teachers, curators, writers or publishers) without recognition become visible.
Could women's contributions have changed the course of our present if they had been considerate by the hegemonic texts that shaped our professional practice? This project aims to imagine other [alter] narratives, like alternative proposals spaces [topos].
A wider reading space where women's contributions acquire the same relevance as men's. The impact of turning existing narratives into fair and inclusive places seeks to modify our thinking structures in order to change our present.
