• Chicago Women in Architecture a. DOT a.Dot Exhibition Call for Entries
Our membership is defining and redefining itself, identifying new opportunities, and finding its place within the structure of the new context. In order to support ourselves financially — in order to find professional and personal fulfillment — out of necessity or creative imperative, we as professionals have begun to do things other than what has traditionally defined the Architect. This exhibition is an exploration of personal journeys — between architecture and Doing Other Things.
