On Thursday 24th March 2022 from 6.00 pm to 8.00 pm, a new meeting of the cycle “The Contribution of Women in Contemporary Architecture” will take place online and via Facebook Live.

After the first six online meetings held in October 2020 – on the Swiss and Finnish examples – in February 2021 – on the British and Danish examples – and in November 2022 – on the Spanish and Chilean examples – the cycle continued on the 10th of March 2022 with an evening on Austrian architecture.

The Foundation of the Order of Architects P.P.C. of the Province of Milan continues promoting the initiative “The Contribution of Women in Contemporary Architecture” curated by the architect Arianna Callocchia. Its goal is to continue to highlight the role and the importance that women play in contemporary architecture. The event has been organised to foster discussion and create an opportunity for dialogue and professional exchange between the Italian and the international scenario.

During the online meeting on 24th March “The Contribution of Women in Contemporary Architecture: The Canadian Example”, the designers themselves will illustrate some projects recently built in Canada. The aim is to present their approach and their design philosophy in contemporary architecture within the themes of environmental sustainability, technological innovation and building redevelopment. The meeting will also touch on the relationship with the historical, cultural and urban context.

After the welcome remarks by Angela Panza, Councilor of the Order and Foundation of the Order of Architects P.P.C. of the Province of Milan and Virginie Lévesque, Counsellor of Public Affairs and Advocacy, Embassy of Canada to Italy, the floor will be given to Shirley Blumberg, founding partner of KPMB Architects of Toronto and to Renée Daoust, founding partner of Daoust Lestage Lizotte Stecker of Montreal. Shirley Blumberg, will present a selection of projects responding to the evolving world, significant for their approach to the themes of environmental sustainability, architectural recovery and dialogue with the territory. Renée Daoust, will present architectural projects built in Canada that are characterized by their multidisciplinary approach, intertwining architecture, urban design and landscape architecture. The meeting will be moderated by Fabrizia Berlingieri, DAStU, Politecnico of Milan.
