Watch: Highlights of the Women in Architecture Annual Lecture by Manuelle Gautrand

  • Comment

Manuelle Gautrand delivered this year’s Women in Architecture Annual Lecture – here’s some highlights

In the lecture Gautrand – the first woman to win the European Prize for Architecture – presents three projects: the Gaumont-Pathé Alésia Cinema in Paris, Bradstapeln, a mixed-use retrofit in Stockholm, and Parramatta Cultural Centre in Sydney.

Now in its seventh year, the AJ / Architectural Review Women in Architecture programme celebrates women architects and promotes role models for women in practice. In 2016 the annual lecture was given by Jane Drew Prize winner Odile Decq.

Gautrand founded the practice Manuelle Gautrand Architecture in Lyon in 1991 before moving to Paris two years later. From the Citroën Showroom on the Champs-Élysées completed in 2007 to the faceted marble Origami Building built in 2012, Gautrand designs bold and poetic architecture, driven by her belief that ‘innovation is always based on disobedience’. 

She was awarded the Academy of French Architecture Silver Medal in 2002 and became a chevalier of Légion d’Honneur in 2005. She frequently delivers lectures and workshops and has taught at the Florida International University School of Architecture, the Vienna University of Technology and the École Spéciale d’Architecture in Paris.

The Women in Architecture Annual Lecture was held on Tuesday 26 September at The Goldsmiths’ Centre in London.
