How well do our designed environments - the places and spaces where we live, work and play - meet our aesthetic and functional needs? Increasingly, the distinction between the spaces considered public and private or work and home are becoming more blurred. As a result, innovative designs are needed to meet the challenges of our ever-changing environment.

Design and Feminism consists of a dozen essays, many occasioned by a 1995 conference titled "Re-Visioning Design and Technology," divided very unequally between architecture, on the one hand, and everything else, on the other. Indeed, this is the first concern that must be raised about the collection. In the essay that opens the volume, Joan Rothschild and Victoria Rosner survey many of the books, articles, and conferences that have, since the mid-1970s, addressed such topics as women in architecture, spatial arrangements, and theories of architecture and gender.

How well do our designed environments- the places and spaces where we live, work, and play- meet our aesthetic and functional needs? Increasingly, the distinction between the spaces considered public and private or work and home is becoming more blurred. As a result, innovative designs are needed to meet the challenges of our ever-changing environment. Our streets, parks, dwellings and tools are designed to a "one-size-fits-all" standard, and the responses of the design community to meet diverse needs have been mixed at best. Design and Feminism offers feminist critiques of these inadequate design standards, and suggest ideas, projects, and programs for change.

The interdisciplinary essays reflect the writers' diverse fields- architecture, planning, industrial and graphic design, and architectural, urban, and design history.

Essays cover such subject as rethinking the American city, graphic design and the urban landscape, working at home, theories of women and design, and a trio of essays on industrial designs. A review essay of the literature in these fields- the first of its kind- rounds out the collection.
