Women Build is a new podcast, brought to you by World Architecture News.
We know there are inspirational women in the global architecture arena, operating at all levels in the industry.
This podcast will give a voice to women in architecture, letting them speak out about the issues they face and compare experiences to decipher what changes can be made to improve women’s working environments.
We will also be championing those who are, and want to improve diversity within the industry, and discuss possible reasons why it's lacking at the moment.
This series is running alongside the Female Frontiers: Powered by WAN Awards. They will champion best practice, support new and established talent and celebrate the firms who are supporting women in their roles.
Women Build Sustainably
Women Build speaks to Lisa Bate, Global Sustainability Lead and Senior Principal at B+H Architects in Canada and Mia Lehrer, Founder of Studio MLA in the US.
We talk about putting roads on diets, how a city as developed as LA can be more sustainable, and the Humber College Building NX, which went from being the inefficient building on campus to become the first Net Zero Carbon Design Certified Retrofit Building in Canada in 2019.
Women Build the Final Frontier
Women Build speaks to Christina Ciardullo and Rebeccah Pailes-Friedman from SEArch+ about their designs for Moon based living, human-centred design, the advantages of 3D printing in architecture and how building for space can teach us more about building for Earth.
Continuing a decade-long association with NASA’s Johnson Space Center Human Habitability Division, the mission of SEArch+ is to conceive, investigate, and develop innovative designs enabling humans to thrive in space environments beyond Earth
Women Build Reina
Women Build speaks to Sherry Larjani, Managing Partner at Spotlight Developments and Heather Rolleston, Principal and Design Director at Quadrangle Architects about why they formed an all-female team to combat the gender imbalance in the real estate development industry, the sometimes surprising responses they received as a result of it and how condo living can be covid-proof.
Black Women Build
To mark Black History month in the UK, WAN’s Women Build podcast spoke to three women about the challenges that come with being both female and black in this sector, and how the coronavirus pandemic has revealed the problems of the built environment in black communities.
Recording a podcast virtually had it’s challenges this week and we apologise for the sound issues. We’ll nail it next time.
Welcome to the Female Frontiers: Powered by WAN Awards
