Do you want to know interactively what buildings and urban spaces have been designed by women since the 1960s?

What is our goal?

This research project has the basic objective of creating a digital interactive map in order to situate and document the work of Spanish women architects that we are at present studying as part of the research project “Women in Spanish (post)modern architectural culture, 1965-2000”.

This interactive map will be free to use via a website for anybody who wishes to visit it. The works will appear geo-positioned and classified according to their type (single-family dwelling, collective dwelling, educational centre, urban design, institutional building, park, health centre, heritage restoration, etc.), their date of completion and their female authorship (indicating the project team). It will be accompanied by an explanation with relevant details and a critical commentary on the works shown, as well as informative photographs about them.

This map is necessary because, despite the fact that hundreds of women have been practising architecture for more than half a century, their works hardly ever appear in books or manuals on the history of Spanish architecture. As a result, there is a dearth of knowledge concerning the contributions made by women architects to Spain’s built environment and its architectural culture. Therefore, the creation of a digital interactive map to enable the consultation of their works will be an extremely useful and easy to access tool that will allow us to overcome the current state of ignorance concerning female-authored architecture.

This map will show visually, in a quick, simple and compelling way, the numerous works of architecture, urban planning, design and landscape created by Spanish women.

After a year and a half of work, we have already documented and analysed around a hundred works by some sixty Spanish architects built between 1965 and 2000. In addition, we have managed to locate other works of shared authorship with male colleagues. In the next year and a half, we hope to further analyse several hundred more works designed by women architects. With this interactive map we want to create a digital archive tool that becomes a consultation resource for future researchers and architecture lovers.
