The ‘She is an Architect’ exhibition in Shanghai hosted by RIBA Business Information Consulting (Shanghai) Company Limited – RIBA China Chapter opened on 28 July. The exhibition is co-hosted by Meta Media and ZiWu.
The exhibition presents the accomplishments of women in architecture, of all ages, from across the world. It spans 124 years: from 1898, when Ethel Mary Charles became the first women architect to join the RIBA, to the present day. Curators use the perspective of women to share their growth, success, experiences, and stories and inspire the audience to examine and reflect on the “unconscious bias and differential treatment” that continues to exist.
Pardini Hall architecture is exhibiting few projects.
Admission is free to the public and no reservation is required. It will remain open until 24 August.

This exhibition not only showcases outstanding designs led by women but also their research on cutting-edge design technologies. It aims to help raise awareness among professionals and the public and prompt action to remove forms of bias and discrimination. The work sits alongside personal messages from the architects.
