Wright and women architects

Beverly Willis launched her new short film, “A Girl Is A Fellow Here”: 100 Women Architects in the Studio of Frank Lloyd Wright, at the Guggenheim in New York on Wednesday. Marion Mahoney (1871–1961) gets a mention in this Metropolis article covering the event. She worked with Frank Lloyd Wright from 1895, before later shifting to Australia with her husband Walter Burley Griffin to work on such wonders as the Canberra plan, and Melbourne’s Newman College and Capitol Theatre . Metropolis informs us that she was the first woman to register as an architect in the world.
