Why no women as housing judges?

  • Comment

Does anyone else think it slightly ironic that the Britannia Basin Competition should have appointed an all-male assessment panel? Housing design is a field where women architects often choose to specialise. There must be plenty of opportunity, in any of the areas from which the assessment panel has been chosen, to find an alternative woman candidate.

Apart from this, any competition which allows only judges of one gender should surely be questioned. A balanced assessment method must surely be preferable. I would like to suggest Katherine Shonfield. Was she asked?
