“Renovada por Studio ST Architects –un despacho fundado en 2003 por Esther Sperber que se sitúa en Manhattan– esta vivienda es tanto sofisticado y confortable como idealmente ubicada, en pleno centro de la ciudad. La entrada, la cocina, el comedor, la sala y el family room fueron diseñados para recibir a invitados frecuentemente. Además, dos recámaras fueron reunidas para crear una sala de juegos para los tres hijos de los dueños.”

We live in a fast world. We eat fast, travel fast, read fragments of stories with great rapidity. And then we realize that in this haste we have lost something valuable.

The general contractor had started the demolition, and I was excited to see the bare space, its walls and other distractions removed, and to imagine the place as we’d designed it. Richard and I entered the apartment for the meeting. Raymond, our contractor, was late, but the new site manager was waiting. When he noticed us, he walked over to Richard, a graying man of around 60, shook his hand and introduced himself. Richard, accustomed to this situation, introduced himself, smiled and then introduced me, announcing, “Please meet my boss, Esther.”
In the 10 years I’ve been running my architectural practice, I, like Richard, have gotten accustomed to people assuming that my male employees are the lead architects who will be making final decisions. Yet this time a lingering frustration colored the rest of my day, a sense that while feminism has made significant progress on a conscious level, little change has trickled down into the unconscious of our culture…”
