In Chasing the Sky: 20 Stories of Women in Architecture the concentrated voice of some of Australia’s most dynamic practitioners and their exceptional projects are presented. Distilled in this volume is a palpable sense of women in architecture, of the jobs and challenges of a creative professional and the culture of making.

Themes and questions run across the publication to reveal commonalities and differences. We read varied views on education, craft and technology; on collaboration and inventive processes; on formative influences and entrepreneurship; and, on the relationship between architecture and society. As acclaimed practitioners and as a diverse collective, they offer an incisive glimpse into the richness of contemporary Australian architecture, of the spirit that galvanises the profession and cultivates its future.
