Alice Rawsthorn has written an interesting article entitled “Women at the Drawing Board” in the Arts section of The New York Times, looking at women in architecture and designs’ past, present and future.  Referencing, among others, Lilly ReichCharlotte Perriand, Ray Eames (and yes, the Wikipedia link directs to “Charles and Ray Eames), Neri Oxman, Daisy GinsbergHilary Cottam, Emily Pilloton, not to mention Hella Jongerius and Patricia Urquiola, this short article sets its sights quite wide indeed.

Just a quick question:  Isn’t there someone out there, with more knowledge than we have (and perhaps better writing skills…), who could write a Wikipedia entry for Emily Pilloton, or Daisy Ginsberg or Hella Jongerius?!?  Please??
