Good designer, her and Rashid (Asymtote) just finished designing some new office furniture for knoll, good stuff. But a collaborative effort from what I here, so far from Doing her own thing!

Carme

this is an older photo, but she still turns heads I'm sure. I'd like to get the ladies opinion about all of this. I mean they are the ones we are objectifying (which in the case of an architect is that a bad thing, we are in the business of object-worship, worse when we have even the slightest connection to it...anyhow before I ramble too much)

Oh and have you noticed that the female architects who make it big, do it at a younger age? A much younger age!! Or is it that they age better?

well, since you asked....

i thought about starting a hot male architects thread in response, but didn't feel like taking the time to figure it out and find a picture.

in response to the objectifiable nature of the thread, i find it to be mildly annoying. however, the discussion doesn't seem to be extremely crass or offensive (yet) and i didn't feel like it really needed to be responded to.

stephanie, that was exactly my response!! Of course I have a huge collection of Brad Pitt pics to post, but didn't feel like looking for a "real" hot male architect. Though heaven knows there are a lot of them.

Who is the blonde woman posted by Ringo Starr? I couldn't read the website the image came from.

liberty, that would be the topic of discussion, Lise Ann Couture aka Ms. Asymptote....

jam-arch: that pic isn't that old, she looks more or less like that nowadays

this is an old pic, and, while she's a great architect (and seems a nice person), she's far from being 'hot':


nowadays, with the white hair, she has acquired a certain kind of glamour -- one of those ladies that, like wine, gets better as time goes by:

this is some years later (already left Miralles):


and then (+50) the white hair

Kazuyo's smiling face and Farshid's hair look good too...

hate to throw the hair dryer into the bathtub, but our profession is one of the last professions where it doesn't matter a whole lot what your face looks like. i mean, it probably matters more what your glasses and your shoes look like.

i think we should keep it that way. look what happened to opera. they made one of the best sopranos in the world get off the stage because she was too fat. what is "too fat" when you're talking about opera singers? nowadays you don't get a recording contract unless you've got a face that will sell CDs. maria callas did not have that face.

then again if you can name that soprano you're probably not all that into the tenor of this conversation (pardon the pun)

come on, boys

can anybody here tell, without knowing, which gender designed that building you are looking at? (yes there are few out there, sadly in low quantaties)
it usually matters only after finding out who.
zaha hadid;
she is an example.she is doing what the big men of architecture are doing. she has got a medal for being an architect. not a female architect but architect. there are many more out there like zaha hadid that would be pissed off when referred as woman architect.
the reason zaha gets a lot of shit, because there are a lot of man out there can't stand to see a woman doing what themselves are trying to do and she is doing it better. she is not shy, not intimidated and don't have any famous male partner who took her on to the limelight. she is a boss in a male majority profession and, you know what, she can be the sexiest thing out there for somebody. so i find all the jokes about her physicality unfair.

yes you know when you look at her building which gender has designed.
zaha is my kung fu sistah and she is one hell of a lady. she can fuck you when it comes to architecture. but don't worry, that will be the best fuck you probably will have, until you can do it on your own.

Okay so you know how we established in Wane’s World that Buggs Bunny is really hot when he dresses up as a girl bunny?

Well wouldn’t Rem Koolhaus be really hot if he dressed up like a female architect?
