Cities are and were always planned and built by men. After centuries of male-dominated urban planning culture, the urgent question therefore arises as to how the planning of cities presents itself from a female perspective, and what role women will play in the future. In this context, there have been many significant achievements by women over the last 150 years that have shaped, designed and significantly influenced today's city. This ranges from small improvements for our everyday urban life to the design of buidlings, parks and even entire cities. Much of this has become an integral part of the cities we know.
"The City through a Female Lens" under the curatorial direction of Katja Schechtner and Wojciech Czaja is a series of events and activities on this theme.
Frauen Bauen Stadt - The City Through a Female Lens takes a look at the city of tomorrow and explores the questions: To what extent will the city of the future be tailored to the wishes and needs of women? And what role do female architects and urban planners play in this?
The exhibition "The city through the Female Lens" features 18 female architects, urban planners, urban designers, landscape architects and artists from all over the world with portraits and present their projects, their urban legacy and their ideas for the city of tomorrow.
Wir werfen einen Blick auf die Stadt von morgen und gehen der Frage nach: Wie stellen sich Stadtplanung und Städtebau in Theorie und Praxis aus weiblicher Perspektive dar? (Veranstaltung in englischer Sprache)
