REBELARCHITETTE - CREATIVE DIGITAL ACTIVISTS

A collective, open project raising awareness and promoting research and information around the recognition of the role of women architects – still too far from the spotlight – at the national and international levels.

/

The ultimate aim of this project is to promote a heterogeneous and fair professional landscape where Women architects become reference figures for the new generations. By offering role models of excellence in the world of architecture to young female and male students, as well as juries, academics, organizers of exhibitions, and journalists, we want to guarantee a more inclusive and equal view of the profession.

2018 VENICE BIENNALE ARCHITECTURE

Architette=Women architects Here we are! was initially intended as a non-profit editorial project, an online book to be published coinciding with the opening of the Venice Biennale 2018, to promote 365 role models of excellence of women architects from all over the world presented on an open-source platform.

2017 ARCHITETTA PROFESSIONAL STAMP

With members from Italy, Europe, and Canada, the RebelTeam was established in Bergamo, Italy, in May 2017. 

Everything started discussing the intense national debate grown after the approval of the professional stamp in the feminine declination Architetta (meaning Woman Architect – in Italy, until then the official mark was only available in the masculine architetto).

Up to 2019, only 5 of the 106 Italian architect associations have allowed the use of the professional stamp in the feminine. They are Naples, Rome, Lecce, Turin, and Bergamo.

The group identified 3 main goals:

DISSEMINATE female role models of excellence

nationally and internationally, through the self-published book “ARCHITETTE = WOMEN ARCHITECTS Here we are!” and the facebook platform Architette.

RAISE AWARNESS of the need for equal gender participation

in the architecture field, through the international campaign and report #timefor50 #timeforequality (in all professions), addressed to all those involved in the organization of events and the promotion of architecture: professional associations, private organizers, jury organizers, journalists, etc.

The REPORT #timefor50 investigates the unbalanced presence of female speakers in 411 events organized in Italy between 2017 and 2018, and it is freely available online.

The statistics are bleak: over the 411 events average 26% female speakers against 74% male speakers. 

37% of events have been all-male based. #manels

DIFFUSE the importance of the application of gendered language

in the profession normalizing the use of the professional title Architetta and the dedicated professional stamp in the feminine form.

We strongly encourage a declared commitment to networking and mutual support between Italian and international professionals through the creation of specific online and offline events and mentoring activities.
