Women in Architecture spotlights contributions women have made to the profession and provides a current snapshot of the changing role of women in architecture and design. Profiles of exceptional women in architecture and related practices such as urban planning, interiors, preservation and sustainability are examined in video, text and images. A graphic timeline tracks notable statistics and landmark accomplishments supplemented with curated perspectives and anecdotes.

Original research highlighting women who have practiced architecture in the City of Houston, including the youngest generation of leaders, is displayed parallel to national and international forerunners. Completed and conceptual work is presented in photographs, models, renderings and illustrations.
