Women Architects Born in the 19th Century
From J. Louise Blanchard and Marion Lucy Mahoney to Sophia G. Hayden and Julia Morgan, women architects contributed significantly to architecture in the 19th century in all styles, from Beaux Arts through Art Deco. As minorities, within the profession of architecture, women achieved projects both nationally and internationally with great odds working against them. Robert Arthur King, FAIA, focuses on achievements of these architects who were born in the 19th century.
King, a Fellow with the American Institute of Architects, has taught at the New York School of Interior Design since 1988. He is a graduate of Columbia University and the Architectural Association Graduate School in London.
