Starting a Conversation Mar 2012
Margarita joined a panel of up-and-coming female architects and designers at Van Alen Books. The conversation was one of three events lead by Lori Brown, the curator and editor of Feminist Practices, a project exploring how the growing role of women in the production of architecture and design is impacting the conventions of creative practice. The opening conversation included Lori Brown, Meta Brunzema, Ronit Eisenbach, Kyna Leski and Margarita McGrath. The three events at Van Alen Books kindled a conversation between young architects and designers in attendance and panel members further along in their careers. This resulted in the launching of SHarE, a women + architecture collective that is now meeting monthly in NYC.
