Our Book

Gold medal recipient of the International Latino Book Awards (ILBA), Latinas in Architecture is an anthology of compelling highs and lows, and sometimes shocking, life stories of multicultural Latina women in the field of architecture. The women in this book are passionate about architecture and the built environment. The stories are written by young professionals, experienced architects, mothers and/or business owners.  

Representing less than 1% in the architecture field, they proudly contribute to the built environment as architects, engineers, urban planners, construction managers and sustainability professionals. In this book you will find 19 stories with different beginnings, challenges, and compelling reasons that kept each woman going on their architectural journey.
