Lance Hosey, the Chief sustainability officer for Perkins Eastman, states in his blog ‘Sexism Is Alive and Well in Architecture’ that “Sexism takes many forms in architecture” and women aren’t recognized enough for their work in the field.  The purpose of this blog is to inform people of the “objectification of women through architecture”.  Hosey states that, “emulating women’s bodies in architecture objectifies women, but it also objectivities architecture, reducing buildings to mere totems, ciphers reminding us who is in power”. The intended audience is the architects themselves because Hosey is ultimately making a call for action for architects to have a non-sexist inspiration for their sculptures.  Hosey uses secondary support from articles, statistics from websites, and interviews.
