Formatted abstract
This report seeks to build a more rich and detailed picture of women’s involvement in the Australian
architecture profession that has previously been available to researchers, architects, or policymakers.
It does so by verifying, expanding, and clarifying existing (often incomplete) data, and
seeking to triangulate different sets of data to verify themes and patterns. So what is the situation of
women in architecture in Australia today?

It is difficult to create a complete or clear picture of the different representation and experience of
women and men in architecture in Australia in numeric terms. Whilst there is reasonably clear,
accurate data on the proportion of women and men graduating from architectural Schools since
1999 (and patchy data prior to that date), the actual number employed in the architecture
profession is not tracked by any agency. This report represents an attempt to come closer to
mapping the distribution of men and women across the profession, but further research is required,
and further data gathering in future is imperative if a true picture of the demographic profile of the
profession is to be understood.
