This timely book celebrates the inspirational achievements of women architects in every corner of the world. Historically, women architects were left out of the news and awards ceremonies, but now they are spearheading some of the most exciting and important projects in every corner of the globe. These profiles of 50 women architects bring to light some of those projects. A double-page spread introduces each architect with a brief biography, an overview of her philosophy and vision, and stunning photographs of her most significant works.

The book features interviews with several of the architects, including feminist icon, philanthropist, and Nigerian architect Olajumoke Adenowo; Tatiana Bilbao, who is leading the way in sustainable Mexican architecture; Rossana Hu, who is fighting to preserve Chinese village culture in her rapidly urbanizing country; and Elizabeth Diller, who created the High Line, one of New York City's most beloved public spaces, and helped redesign the Museum of Modern Art.
