A historical analysis of the role of gender in the design of corporate buildings and interiors, 1950-present
Historically, offices have been designed for men, often by men, yet little research exists on how workplace design affects workplace inequality. This architectural history research will show how women’s well-being, health, status and career progression have been disproportionately disadvantaged through space management and design, furniture and product design, and the client-designer relationship. The project includes case studies in The Netherlands, the US and the UK.
