October 23rd, 2014 Voices From Venice is a series of one-on-one interviews with Caroline James and 5 leading women architects in the field: Caroline Bos of UNStudio, Louise Braverman of Louise Braverman, Architect, Odile Decq of Studio Odile Decq, Yasmin Shariff of Dennis Sharp Architects, and Benedetta Tabliabue of Miralles Tagliabue EMBT. Louise enjoyed participating with her thoughtful peers in this video where women speak candidly about their experiences in the contemporary architecture world. The video is an extension of Caroline James and Arielle Assouline-Lichten's ongoing effort for gender equality in architecture, which began with the petition to recognize Denise Scott Brown’s inclusion in the 1991 Pritzker Prize.
