A ground-breaking visual survey of architecture designed by women from the early twentieth century to the present day 'Would you still call me a diva if I were a man?' asked Zaha Hadid, challenging as she did so, more than 100 years of stereotypes about female architects. A centu...ry in which women were refused entry to architecture schools, were denied degrees when they had completed courses, a century in which even now, women occupy just ten per cent of the highest-ranking jobs in architecture firms. In contrast, Breaking Ground is a pioneering, even essential, celebration of incredible architecture designed by women. Featuring more than 150 architects and buildings, and spanning the last 100 years, Breaking Ground is both a glorious visual manifesto and a timely record of the extraordinary contribution female architects have made to the profession.
