EN Black Turtleneck, Round Glasses is a fresh and touching essay that opens eyes to equality and justice. Karin Hartmann makes visible the new and old claims and proposals that are needed for better architectures and cities for all. Because changing ways of doing is a necessity, feminism is the clue.
—Zaida Muxí Martínez, Professor at ETSAB-
Karin Hartmann’s book Black Turtleneck, Round Glasses is a comprehensive, thorough education of the reader—male or female—about the relentless limitations women experience in the field of architecture even today: be it in their private, family, artistic, or professional life. I recommend this book to every architecture student, or aspiring architect; especially to decision makers ranging from the client or academic administrator to the employer.
