The book unravels a rich overview of dynamics in the sector, supported by many references to literature and research from Germany but also from other European countries and the United States. . . . Hartmann’s book is a welcome overview of the issues surrounding gender and diversity that play a role in the architectural practice. . . . A particular strength of the book is that Hartmann doesn’t shy away from making sharp statements and explicitly points out the structural discrimination in the sector. . . . A broader awareness and knowledge in the industry are indispensable, and Black Turtleneck, Round Glasses can make an important contribution to that.
