Celebrate the work of Dolores Hayden, Professor of Architecture, Urbanism, and American Studies Emerita at Yale University. Hayden is the 24th recipient of the National Building Museum’s annual Vincent Scully Prize. Beginning in the 1970s, she pioneered the analysis of American built environments to document the history of gender, class, and race. As an urban historian, architect, and poet, Hayden is the author of several award-winning books about American landscapes and the politics of place. In a conversation with Ellen Dunham-Jones, Director of the Master of Science in Urban Design degree and host of the Redesigning Cities podcast at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Hayden will discuss how gender inequality is maintained by the built environment and reflect on what an egalitarian city with feminist infrastructure might be like.
