In ‘Sexism is Alive and Well in Architecture”, Lance Hosey, Chief Sustainability Officer at Perkins Eastman, described the biased nature of the architectural industry, which is highly discriminatory against women. Throughout the article, he uses historical accounts, statistical information, recorded interviews, and possibly his own experience to support his argument. Hosey’s purpose is to highlight the history of sexism in architecture and to call for a change in the industry. The piece can apply to a wide audience, but could draw the attention of Hosey’s colleagues and peers in the architecture industry.
