Early Women in NZ Architecture - Elizabeth Cox Lecture Series

Back
11 September 2018

Architectural and social historian Elizabeth Cox presents her lecture “Their Presence Could Work a Revolution”: Early Women Architects in New Zealand in a Lecture series in Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland. She looks specifically at the period 1900-1940s, and at the call by a sector of the New Zealand community for women to become architects. This presentation explores why, and tells the stories of those who answered the call.  How did they contribute to the field and why have they mainly disappeared from our architectural history today? 

You can hear Elizabeth Cox talk with Jesse Mulligan on RNZ on the 'Social History of Buildings', 9 April 2018.

Elizabeth belongs to the Professional Historians' Association of New zealand / Aotearoa.(PHANZA)
