Weekly Architecture Fix, Vol. 1 | Women in Architecture

We’re still here for you, even while social distancing

Greetings, friends and supporters!

We hope you’re staying safe and healthy and acclimating well to our collective temporary new normal. During this time, it’s important that we stay connected as much as possible to the things that bring us joy and stimulation. As long-time members, subscribers to our eNews and regular participants in our programming, we hope you’ll appreciate this weekly offering – your weekly architecture fix!

Every week, from now until who knows, we’ll send you fun and engaging resources from the Denver Architecture Foundation, the world wide web and our local community. Resources for kids will be included, too! Each week’s resources from the world wide web will be themed – this week’s theme is Women in Architecture.

Warm regards,
DAF Team

Denver Architecture Foundation Resources:

In striving to bring you as much virtual content as we have available, below are selections from Doors Open Denver, the Cleworth Architectural Legacy Project, our beloved youth education program, and more. Enjoyment for both adults and kids!

Feature: Women in Architecture – Resources from the world wide web

From the Women’s Vote Centennial Initiative: “The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing and protecting women’s constitutional right to vote. This historic centennial offers an unparalleled opportunity to commemorate a milestone of democracy and to explore its relevance to the issues of equal rights today.” It’s in this spirit, and in celebration of Women’s History Month, that our inaugural feature on architecture is Women in Architecture. Below are resources you can watch, listen to and read, including a little something for kids. Enjoy!
