Abstract

From a European and interdisciplinary perspective the project considers an issue of contemporary cultural, social and economic importance: women’s achievements in the design professions of architecture (civil engineering), interior and landscape design, and urban planning, some of which were and/or are perceived as traditionally male professions. Thus, the project tackles an equal opportunity theme, both in past and present times. General aim of the project is sharing in the achievement of a harmonious social development of the European society through the removal of disparities and the implementation of culture and work, intended as a vehicle for women emancipation. MoMoWo aims to reveal and promote the significant European Cultural Heritage created by women working in the design professions, which hitherto and to a significant extent has been ‘hidden from history’. At the same time it aims to promote and increase the value of the works and achievements of the present generations of women professionals to give strength to the future generations of creative women.
