2019

 

Exhibition “A Room of One’s Own: Feminist’s Questions to Architecture” explores Estonian architecture through the prism of feminism. The exhibition throws up nine questions about the specificities of architectural education, the stereotypes and prejudices related to the work of women architects, the role expectations embodied in public urban space and housing, as well as spatial equality and the needs of marginal users. Curated by Ingrid Ruudi; spatial design by Katrin Koov.
