The 2015 Women in Architecture survey reveals the definitive picture of women in the profession today, says Laura Mark
The AJ’s Women in Architecture Survey has become a major annual event and this year, more people than ever have taken part – 1,104.
It hasn’t just been women responding: 20 per cent of responses came from men, allowing us to compare what male and female practitioners think.
As well as architects – who made up 56 per cent of respondents – clients, consultants, academics, engineers, PRs and developers also filled out the survey.
Now in its fourth year, the survey forms a vital part of The AJ’s on-going programme aimed at raising the status of women in the profession and celebrating their work.
The annual data, collected anonymously and focused this year on the UK profession alone, allows us to track progress in perception, pay equality, and gender balance over time. Previous results have been published widely in the national media, used by the RIBA, and referred to by government.
The evidence published reveals the definitive picture of the life of a working, female architect today.
