Jill Lerner Discusses Women in Architecture with AIA New York

On October 26th, the KPF Principal joined a panel of fellow architects featured in The Women Who Changed Architecture for a book talk as part of Archtober.

Published by Princeton Architectural Press earlier this year, The Women Who Changed Architecture  is a visual and global chronicle of the triumphs and challenges of over 100 women in architecture. Documenting significant work by laudable female architects, the book highlights the value of different perspectives, cultures, identities, and contexts, bringing them into the central narrative.

Jill is featured alongside professionals such as Zaha Hadid and Marion Weiss, with a spread highlighting her promotion to partner in 1999, only five years after joining KPF, making her the first woman in the firm’s history to achieve the title.

On the panel, Jill was joined by Nicole Dosso, FAIA, Vice President of Design & Construction, Vornado Realty Trust, and Claire Weisz, FAIA, Founding Partner, WXY. Suchi Reddy, AIA, Founding Principal, Reddymade, moderated the conversation.

The panel, hosted by the AIANY Women in Architecture Committee, took place on Wednesday, October 26th from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM at the Center for Architecture. Learn more here.
