Annabelle Selldorf gave a Keynote Lecture to the audience of Women in Design 2020+, an international Conference and Exhibition curated by the HECAR Foundation, which aims to share stories of women around the world who have excelled in the field of architecture, construction, and other related design fields.
Her lecture, titled “There is a lot to do in Architecture”, will introduce her personal and professional trajectory from Cologne, Germany, where she was born and raised, to coming to New York City to study architecture. In projects that range from museums to residential, and the largest recycling facility in the United States to a new school in rural Zambia, Ms. Selldorf presented recent and current projects that represent the firm’s commitment to human centered design as she reflected on issues that she believes will move the profession forward.
Over three days, women from India and around the globe shared their work, thoughts and ideas. The event showcased the immense capabilities, accomplishments and innovative genetic abilities of women in architecture and design that will be a landmark event for both women and men architects, design professionals, students and enthusiasts. Annabelle also participated in a panel discussion with Billie Tsien, and Brinda Somaya, moderated by Ranjit Hoskote.
