Untold stories - About women, gender and architecture in Denmark tells a new story about 20th century architecture in Denmark. For the first time, we get an overall picture of the great importance women have had in the period 1930-1980 for the development of the welfare society's architecture. The book's five chapters present hitherto untold stories about how architecture is created through creative collaborations across genders and disciplines.
Women have contributed to everything from kitchens and buildings to landscape architecture and urban planning, and their stories highlight the hidden diversity that has shaped our buildings, cities and landscapes.
It is necessary to understand the significance of this diversity in order for us to create new ways of living and building in the future in light of the many crises we as a society are facing.
The book was written by Jannie Rosenberg Bendsen, Svava Riesto and Henriette
Steiner as part of the research project Women in Danish Architecture at
University of Copenhagen.
