Women in leading positions in architecture are in the minority worldwide. But this is not the case in Havana, the urban renewal of which is exemplary and proves their skills. This project aims to introduce women in the building industry to a wider public and, using Cuba as an example, to encourage them to become involved in leading positions. The achievements of female architects and engineers in the historic old town of Havana are being honored. Twelve female urban planners and their works are presented in interviews and photographs, and further text contributions provide information on the role of women in Cuban architecture before and after the revolution. Aside from a few Cuban magazine articles, this is the first publication on female architects in Havana.
