L’Espace Féminin has facilitated many great encounters that are hugely valuable in and of themselves. Throughout the year, we have been fortunate to meet a plethora of interesting people in a variety of settings. People have certainly been the principal driving force for projects – we have seen the network grow and consequently our work and the questions we ask have become more nuanced and sophisticated. This is something that we believe we can be proud of. Furthermore, the broad scope of our projects has enabled us to work with different people with their own respective, commendable approaches. The expansion of the L’Espace Féminin network should continue indefinitely, as people continue to meet and discuss the issues we have raised, tackle urban problems in their Kiez and hopefully see their work recognised on an international platform.
We hope to continue our work this year in order to ensure that these things can happen. Starting in February, we will host dinners every two months in order to further the discussion and facilitate more fruitful exchanges. Another resident will be chosen to take on site-specific projects with a socially minded approach. We are considering another Conversations event, perhaps to coincide with the World Architecture Festival in November. Strategic planning is always essential to ensure that our events are as effective as they possibly can be. The project has been successful to date, and we are very happy with the progress we have all made. If the trajectory continues in such a positive way, it is conceivable that a publication could arise out of our experiences, while the Directory will continue to showcase excellent practitioners in the service of strengthening women’s position with the world of architecture and urbanism.
