Inés Sánchez de Madariaga, Professor of Urban and Regional Planning, Madrid School of Architecture

Inés Sánchez de Madariaga will present her work on the Spanish architect Matilde Ucelay. Ucelay was the first woman to qualify to practice architecture in Spain. Her promising career was limited due to her participation in the defense of the Republic during the Spanish Civil war, for which she was prosecuted during Franco’s regime.

Inés Sánchez de Madariaga is a Professor of Urban and Regional Planning at the Madrid School of Architecture where she directs the first Spanish group on gender, architecture, and city planning, which she founded. She received her MSc from Columbia University, and her PhD from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. She has been a visiting professor at Columbia, the London School of Economics and the Bauhaus School of Architecture. She is also contributed to a number of advisory commissions, including the Helsinki Group on gender and science, has held public office in Spain, and co-directs the EU-US Gendered Innovation Project at Stanford University. Her book on Matilde Ucelay is forthcoming.

Coordinated by the PhD students in architecture history and theory at the GSAPP. Sponsored by Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP)  |
