Description - Women's Places by Brenda Martin

What was different about the environments that women created as architects, designers and clients at a time when they were gaining increasing political and social status in a male world? Through a series of case studies, Women's Places: Architecture and Design 1860-1960, examines in detail the professional and domestic spaces created by women who had money and the opportunity to achieve their ideal. Set against a background of accepted notions of modernity relating to design and architecture of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, this book provides a fascinating insight into women's social aspirations and identities. The variety of case studies looking at woman as producers, clients, consumers and theorists examines: Princess Louise, Kate Greenaway, the Hall sisters, Josephine Baker, Elsie de Wolfe, Eileen Gray, Elizabeth Denby, Dora Gordine and Marie Dormoy. With 57 illustrations and drawing on original and pioneering research, this book provides new information and new interpretations in the study of gender, material culture and the built environment in the period 1860-1960. Louise Campbell, Elizabeth Darling, Alice T. Friedman, Tanis Hinchcliffe, Trevor Keeble, Brenda Martin, Penny Sparke and Lynne Walker
