I am honored to be a part of this program of building awareness of the issue of where women fit in the field of architecture.
(PRWEB) October 08, 2012
The AIA has many dynamic programs throughout the year to build awareness of issues in the architecture profession as well as to explore the built environment. Popular programs such as the San Francisco Home Tours and the annual Design Awards educate individuals about good design in the San Francisco Bay Area.
"The Missing 32%" is a seminar program with speakers from many different career paths, including Eliza Hart who chose to start her own firm, Hart Wright Architects. They will be discussing architecture firm leadership, current statistics in architecture firms with respect to women and will work to define the role of women in architecture.
The program gives members a chance to earn educational credits and takes place October 13, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM at Timken Hall on the California College of Arts campus in San Francisco.
This is what San Francisco architect and urban designer Eliza Hart had to say about the symposium:
“I am honored to be a part of this program of building awareness of the issue of where women fit in the field of architecture.”
Principal Eliza Hart has separate masters degrees in both Architecture and Urban Planning from UCLA. Before forming HWA, Eliza was employed at S.F. Bay Area firms Studio Bergtraun Architects and Sagan Piechota Architecture. She has worked on a variety of residential and commercial projects, including remodels as well as new construction; with extensive experience spanning the full range from schematic design to construction documents to construction administration.
Eliza also has a background in urban design and worked in Los Angeles with urban designer, architect and author, John Kaliski on a variety of projects. Her B.A. is from the University of Pennsylvania. She is a member of the AIA, Build it Green and is on the Steering Committee of OWA, the Organization of Women Architects.
Eliza's partner and architect, Stuart Wright, has worked on a broad range of architectural projects and bridges the gap between design and building. Prior to forming HWA, Stuart worked at Studio Bergtraun Architects, and before that at Sagan Piechota Architecture, specializing in modern residential projects. He is attentive to detail and knows that details are his best architectural expression.
Stuart received his Master of Architecture at UCLA and studied at the Technical University in Vienna, Austria and at Studio Daniel Libeskind in Berlin, Germany. He holds a B.S. in Architecture from the University of Michigan.
