This free exhibition at the King’s Cross Visitor Centre celebrates female architects
From architect and writer Ruth Lang and photographer Ivan Jones, the photographic series ♀Architects seeks to reveal the often unacknowledged faces of contemporary architectural practice.
The portraits in the exhibition aim to show the architects in a new light; framed by their work, not by their gender. It is a statement of equality, not difference. These architects are powerful in their own right, not in comparison to another’s status. There are no special concessions to femininity or “femaleness”; these are architects and orchestrators of extraordinary architectural projects. They just happen to be women.
The exhibition features Mary Duggan and Alison Brooks who designed landmark buildings at King’s Cross, as well as Morwenna Hall, who led the development of Coal Drops Yard.
