Summary
"What style building do you live in? Is it a skyscraper, a Victorian home, or a modern building? Who designed it? Why did they choose that design? "Architecture: cool women who design structures" examines the history of architecture and the careers of three women who are working as architects today. Patricia Galvan works in commercial and interior architecture and is the chairwoman for the American Institute of Architects' Women in Architecture committee. Farida Abu-Bakare is an architect who designs science labs for universities and other institutions. Maia Small works as an architect and urban designer at the City of San Francisco Planning Department. All of these women work hard in their chosen field and show an active interest in encouraging kids to strive toward their career goals in architecture!"--Back cover
