On Tuesday, the 8th of November, placed in the historic centre of Bratislava, the professional association Women Architects presented an exhibition of “Women in Slovak architecture”. The collection of projects created by 25 talented female architects of varying age, specialisation or project scales, gained a great deal of appreciation in Budapest, where it was opened just three weeks ago.

The exhibition in the gallery space ARCHA in Bratislava was opened by the chief architect of the city Ingrid Konrad, the founder of Women Architects Andrea Klimko and her team organising the exhibition, and most importantly the presented architects, and supported by the Slovak Arts CouncilSlovak Chamber of Architects (SKA)Slovak Architecture Society (SAS) and the Faculty of Architecture (FA STU).

As the number of women willing to display their work increases year by year, the content of the exhibition is growing steadily as well.
