ABOUT DIVIA AWARDS
According to the Divia Awards website, Diversity in architecture is the platform to promote a prize for women architects. This award is dedicated to the celebration of women architects by recognizing and honoring their work. The promotion of equality between female and male architects, providing role models for a younger generation of women architects. As stated on their website, the platform cares about diversity in architecture – and their first step is to make women architects visible.
The visibility of women in architecture and in the broader field of urban planning goes hand in hand with their public recognition. Awards specifically for women could well accelerate this development. The goal of OUR PLATFORM is to make women architects visible, to recognize and honor their work, to promote equality between male and female architects, and to raise awareness of role models for young women architects.
