Women’s action group launches protest at men-only RIBA Royal Gold Medal


What is the assessment process for the RIBA Royal Gold Medal? Is it fair? What is the criteria? Are there reasonable attempts to counter biases? In your comment, you raise many of the questions that Part W is asking. This is not about a conspiracy theory, but it is about honour and integrity. It is also about merit. Do you believe that in 171 years, not a single female architect (aside from Zaha) was deserving of the award in her own right? Not Jane Jacobs, not Jane Drew, or Lina Bo Bardi? Just because it happened, doesn't make it right. Posted on behalf of: Christine Murray, former AJ editor
