Lambert and O'Donnell to headline AJ Women in Architecture event

Phyllis Lambert and Sheila O’Donnell are to speak at this year’s Women in Architecture Luncheon on 27 February 2015

Lambert, who oversaw the construction of Mies van der Rohe’s Seagram Building in New York at the beginning of her career, has been in the profession for more than 50 years.

Now aged 87, she retired from her role as chair of the Canadian Centre for Architecture, the organisation she set up and led for more than 35 years, last January. 

Lambert’s work has gleaned awards including the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at the 2014 Venice Biennale, the Gold Medal of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, the AIA Award of Honor and the Jane Jacobs Lifetime Achievement Award from the Canadian Urban Institute. She is an honorary fellow of the RIBA and holds 27 honorary degrees from universities in Europe and North America.

She will be joined by RIBA Gold Medal winner Sheila O’Donnell, who will speak about her career and the work of her practice.

Dublin-based O’Donnell founded her practice O’Donnell + Tuomey with her husband John Tuomey in 1988 and has since gone on to be shortlisted for the Stirling Prize a record five times.

The winners of the AJ’s fourth annual Women in Architecture Awards, which are sponsored by Hoare Lea and Griffiths and Armour, will also be announced at the lunch.

Tickets are now on sale for the event, which forms part of the Roca-sponsored AJ Women in Architecture programme.

  • Does anyone else think this event is out of their price range?
    As an Architect with small practice its a large amount of money to spend on a dinner. I would love to go along but wont be doing so this year. Jane Opher
