Women and architecture in 18th century Scotland

Her project on ‘Women and Architecture in 18th century Scotland’ involves exploring women as architectural patrons and women as present in architecture. Building on several recent works acknowledging the social and political role of several Scottish noblewomen in the pre-Union period, she focuses on their aesthetic and architectural contribution.
