Women in Architecture: Critical Practice, Presented by Anne Fougeron, AIA

Women In Architecture: Critical Practice, Presented by Anne Fougeron, AIA

Thursday, November 8
6:00 pm - 7:30pm

Our woman-owned firm of Fougeron Architecture has gained international renown for distinguished work that consistently exhibits a strong commitment to design excellence and quality of architectural detail. We approach every job with as much creative and critical thought as possible—including the belief that architecture can and should be a part of the political world.

For us, making great architecture involves designing spaces that people occupy and that move them—rather than demonstrating purely theoretical constructs. Over time, we have become more and more interested in the perceptual qualities of space, in the ways people interact with architecture. This insight has led to this conviction that principles of design are integrally connected to principles of democracy in beautiful spaces. A building that is exciting and full of life communicates respect for all individuals within a community; an environment that is harmonious and reassuring to everyone within reinforces the principle of social equality.
