Why aren't there more women in architecture?
Question: Why are there so few women architects?
Richard Meier: If you go to the architecture schools, it’s at least 50 percent women . . . sometimes more in any architectural class. It’s a tough profession in terms of the hours that you have to put into it; in terms of the dedication and commitment. And I’m sure that there’s many women – maybe men as well –who feel that it just takes too much time away from their personal life and their family life. And ultimately the family becomes more important than architecture.
