dc.description.abstract For the past two and a half years I have headed a university school embracing Architecture, Urban Planning and Urban Design. This presentation focuses on Architecture, Urban Planning and the disciplinary and interdisciplinary implications for women engaged as professionals and/or academics in the built environment. Architecture (at the University of Auckland) was founded in 1917 and Town Planning (Planning and now Urban Planning) in 1958. The first woman tenure track staff member at the University of Auckland was appointed in Architecture in 1981 and in Planning in 1987. Since the 1990s the student cohort of women in both fields has expanded, with 50%+ of new recruits today. In Auckland both disciplines have co-existed in various structural alignments since the 1950s - and as a School of Architecture and Planning since 2006. Architecture is an old discipline/profession, Planning more recent. How do both serve women on graduation and thereafter? How do the cultures of each promote or hinder women graduates (professionals and academics)? What might both sides of the bridge learn from each other in progressing the status, remuneration and power of women working to enhance New Zealand’s built environment and what is the role of the academe in supporting this? en
