Moving beyond Patronage

Lori Brown

The Beyond Patronage symposium was a thought-provoking day with a series of all-woman panels comprised of an array of design research and creative practices demonstrating what beyond patronage architectural practices look like. And that the day’s events only included women is critically important and must be acknowledged. The theme of the symposium and, by extension, the book is such a timely topic. Publicly discussing what beyond patronage means, in order for the profession to evolve and be more responsive to our contemporary society, is of utmost importance today.
