"I Want to Be an Architect: A Journey to the Heart of ‘Forgotten’ History".

With this campaign, I aim to publish an illustrated book adapted for children, to inform them about the history of female architects ‘forgotten’ by the ‘official’ history, a story that I hope will be enjoyable for you to understand the issue from another perspective and writing. “I Want to Be an Architect: A Journey to the Heart of ‘Forgotten’ History.” The book is already written and accepted by the Editorial, but to be able to carry out the illustrations and its publication I need your help and dissemination of the project!

The Characters

- Characters: the architects, and the storyteller ** named **Noa, who will guide you through all the stories and journeys around the world where each architect is located.

Some of the leading female architects:Plautilla Bricci, Elizabeth Wilbraham, Mary Townley, Louise Blanchard Bethune, Signe Hornborg, Hilda Hongell, Sophia Hayden Bennett, Julia Morgan, Emilie Winkelmann, Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky, Elina Mottran, Jane Drew, Lina Bo Bardi, María José Marques da Silva, Han Scröder, Hilde Weström, Matilde Ucelay, Pascuala Campos de Michelena, Zaha Hadid, Elizabeth Diller, Kazuyo Sejima.

These are some of the pioneers and characters from the children’s book, among others that you will discover throughout the story.

Get Exclusive Rewards

- The book is the “top” reward". You will also receive a beautiful print of the cover, and on the back, the names of all the patrons who are part of this project. A bookmark, and a cloth bag. The design is exclusive to the campaign.

Who I Am/We Are

I am Ainoa Fernández Cruces, an architect, urban planner, and designer. Passionate about the dissemination of stories, specifically those of female architects hidden by ‘official’ history. Constantly training and learning to give my best to everyone.

  • With the help of the editorial team, and Verkami, you will see the project of my dreams come true. Giving voice to the architects ‘forgotten’ by ‘official’ history from a graphic perspective and adapted to the youngest audience.

What We Will Use Your Contributions For

Your contributions will go directly to the expenses of creating the book and illustrations with the publisher, and the creation and shipment of your rewards.

Planned Schedule

It depends on the Publisher. As soon as they send me the first copies, you will be the first to have them.
