Rediscovering Ella Briggs – The Challenge of Writing Inclusive Architectural Histories for Women Who Broke the Mold

Participation in the international workshop organized by Elana Shapira, Despina Stratigakos and Monika Platzer, 6 june 2022, Az W, Vienna

Recent public discussions on the role of women architects in shaping Red Vienna has focused scholarly attention on Ella Briggs (1880–1977). Despite new research on Briggs' modernist architecture, many questions remain about her biography. International scholars from different disciplines addressed Briggs' career as designer, architect, and critic.

The findings will be published in the book Ella Briggs: The Life and Work of an Unconventional Architect and the Global Quest to Find Her (Princeton University Press, 2025).
