The field of architecture is filled with talented women. Yet the recognition, awards and plum projects still seem to be puzzlingly elusive. The Pritzker Architecture Prize, for example, has existed since 1979, yet it wasnt until 2004 that a woman (Zaha Hadid) received the prestigious award, and only two women have been selected for the prize overall (the other is Kazuyo Sejima of SANAA).
Some of the city's most innovative residential projects were helmed by female architects, including less household-name team players like Nicole Dosso, a technical director at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (the firm designed One World Trade Center and the Baccarat Hotel and Residences, among many other top buildings). Below are some standout residential buildings designed by women.
