In April 2022, we had the first work meeting for the Arquitetas Portuguesas book collection! The collection will consist of ten volumes,  thematic or monographic, with a release date scheduled for this autumn through the Público newspaper.

The introductory text explains: “Currently, Portuguese women architects represent about half of the professionals enrolled in the Portuguese Ordem dos Arquitectos. This number’s growth has not directly impacted the recognition of women architects and their work. The dissemination of Portuguese women architects and their works is essential to combat this situation. This collection, with ten books, aims to contribute to the knowledge and recognition of national women architects and their contributions to the history of architecture and increase general knowledge about Portuguese architecture.”

The collection is coordinated by researchers Patrícia Santos Pedrosa and Natália Fávero, graphic design is being handled by designer Joana Tomé from Math is Good, and the publisher is Coral Books, from Porto, with work by Ricardo Afonso. The authors of the collection are: Joana Roxo, Helena Souto, João Paulo Martins, Ana Vaz Milheiro, Lia Gil Antunes, Cátia Ramos, Maria Pinheiro, Célia Gomes, João Paulo Delgado, Maria João Matos, Nadine Lessa, Rita Ochoa, Catarina Madruga, Jorge Figueira, Carolina Coelho, Eliana Sousa Santos, Patrícia Santos Pedrosa and Natália Fávero.
