The event will bring together international women researchers to explore the legacy of 20th century women architects and designers from former socialist countries. Several innovative but previously overlooked women designers and architects will be featured. Although gender equality in design and architecture was barely achieved during this period and remained another utopian promise, the presentations will highlight the value of these women's contributions to the disciplines, especially by creating designs that promoted diversity and inclusion.

Panel discussion and conversations with Alyona Sokolnikova, Alla Vronskaya, Mary Pepchinski, Helena Huber-Doudová, Kaja Muszyńska
