"La création architecturale, urbaine ou paysagère est un acte qui engage l’exercice d’un pouvoir et une action sociale, ce qui explique peut-être que les femmes n’y soient venues que tardivement, malgré un intérêt précocement manifesté. Dès l’Antiquité, des bâtisseuses se sont en exercées à la maîtrise d’ouvrage, dirigeant des chantiers qui témoignent de leur goût pour l’architecture, mais à quelques exceptions près ce n’est qu’au XXe siècle qu’elles ont accédé à la maîtrise d’œuvre."
