Architecture scholar Despina Stratigakos will lecture on Thursday, April 25, as part of MAS Context’s 2019 Spring Talks series. The lecture will take place at Ross Barney Architects (10 West Hubbard Street, Chicago, Illinois 60654). 

Unconscious Bias in Architecture: Why Don’t Architects Wear Pink?

Unconscious bias in architecture creates beliefs about who does or does not belong in the profession, which can undermine our best intentions to be inclusive. By bringing those biases up to the surface so that we can examine them, we can be more intentional in the decisions we make in our everyday and professional practices. Using lessons from history and the power of Architect Barbie, this talk explores architecture’s gendered biases and how we can uproot them.
