BWAF Launches the Built by Women NYC Project

15 August, 2014

-By Erinn Waldo


The Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation has received grants from the New York Building Foundation and the New York Council for the Humanities to identify 100 outstanding structures and built environments, either contemporary or historic, that were designed or constructed by women in New York City.

The structure or built environment submitted to the Built by Women NYC project (BxW NYC) must have had a woman who was directly responsible for leading the design (architecture, engineering, or landscape) or who led the construction, either from the development or construction management team. Projects must also be completed or have broken ground and are located in New York City.

The jurors for BxW NYC include:

Deborah Berke, FAIA, Principal, Deborah Berke Partners
Joan Blumenfeld, FAIA, Principal and Global Interior Design Director, Perkins + Will
Aine Brazil, PE, Managing Principal, Thornton Tomasetti
Fiona Cousins, PE, Principal, ARUP
Cheryl McKissack Daniel, President & CEO, McKissack & McKissack
Andrea Leers, FAIA, Principal, Leers Weinzapfel Associates
Audrey Matlock, FAIA, Principal, Audrey Matlock Architects
Laura Starr, ASLA, Partner, Starr Whitehouse Landscape Architects and Planners

Nominations will be accepted from now until October 31, and the BxW NYC finalists will be announced in late November. Over the next year, walking tours, interactive maps, and other educational materials will be developed to highlight women’s contributions to the built environment and BWAF will host local events to publicize the spaces. It is acceptable to nominate oneself or anyone deserving of this honor.

Submission materials required are a well-written one-page word document profiling the project and including what makes the project unique, excellent, and worthy of inclusion in BxW NYC. Entrants can also submit up to five high-resolution photos or image renderings.
