Frauen Bauen Stadt

The City Through a Female Lens

In 2030, 2.5 billion women will be living and working in cities. In view of the fact that the polis as a construct of life has always been male-dominated in its commissioning, planning and execution, the urgent questions arise:

What is the future of the city through a female lens? To what extent will the city of the future be tailored to the wishes and needs of women? And what role do female architects, urban designers and urban planners play in this?
