Architecture and the Dialectic of Sex deals with the overall question if a feminist architecture does, or respectively, even can exist. Can there be such a thing, or would it remain a mere pipe dream?
Within her research, Bettina Siegele connects various concepts and thoughts from the discourse of feminism with architecture, starting with the work of the material feminists at the beginning of the 20th century, across the work of the GDR architect Karola Bloch, and reaching the contemporary discourse through xenofeminism.
