Wave Effect: Jeanne Gang and architecture’s anti-divas
February 01, 2010 | Paul Goldberger | The New Yorker
In a recent article in The New Yorker, architecture critic Paul Goldberger discusses the contribution that women have made in the field of architecture. Goldberger's case study is on Chicago architect Jeanne Gang, who has recently completed the world's tallest building designed by a woman. Through his case study, Goldberger takes the opportunity to discuss the many accomplishments of some of the world's most talented female architects, among them is KPMB's Marianne McKenna:

"[...] there are plenty of women who have built successful architectural practices by selling themselves not as divas but as purveyors of reason who also happen to be able to make beautiful things. [...] Marianne McKenna (the “M” in the big Toronto firm KPMB) just finished an acclaimed concert hall at the Royal Conservatory of Music, in Toronto, and has been in charge of a new downtown university campus in Montreal."*
