2014 bKL GEMS World Academy Team Photograph

Chicago, Illinois, United States

From the exhibit Women Building Change: Chicago Women in Architecture Celebrates 40 Years: 

“Architecture is not created by a single architect. A diverse group of people must fulfill the various roles required to conceptualize, design, develop, construct, and complete an architectural project. A team of women and men including the client, managers, architects, designers, engineers, landscape architects, and builders must work together collaboratively in order to create the structures around us.”
