A ground-breaking visual survey of architecture designed by women from the early twentieth century to the present day

'Would you still call me a diva if I were a man?'
asked Zaha Hadid, challenging as she did so,
more than 100 years of stereotypes about
female architects. A century in which women
were refused entry to architecture schools, were
denied degrees when they had completed
courses, a century in which even now, women
occupy just ten per cent of the highest-ranking
jobs in architecture firms. In contrast, Breaking
is a pioneering, even essential,
celebration of incredible architecture designed
by women. Featuring more than 150 architects
and buildings, and spanning the last 100
years, Breaking
is both a glorious
visual manifesto and a timely record of the
extraordinary contribution female architects
have made to the profession.
