The EMG publishing house is proud to announce the launch of the book „Ms. Pioneers” – the sixth volume of the series ” The most important is Architecture”. The book is a collection of essays by Hanna Faryna-Paszkiewicz, Grażyna Hryncewicz-Lamber, Marta Leśniakowska, Joanna Majczyk, Małgorzata Omilanowska, Grzegorz Piątek and Agnieszka Tomaszewicz. The book premiere is on November 22.
„Ms. Pioneers” is a response to the wishes of readers of the „Architecture is the most important” series. After the second volume of the series, entitled „Ms. Architects”, the EMG publishing house met with many voices encouraging the continuation of the topic of women’s participation in the creation of Polish architectural culture. „Ms. Pioneers” is a collection of essays about the precursors of urban planning and architecture of modern Poland. It’s about women that were forgotten in these areas, although they contributed to its development: Anna Ptaszycka, Wanda Krahelska, Wanda Melcer, Gizella Marguliesówna and Teresa Chmura-Pełech.
The series is dedicated to the memory of Professor Tomasz Mańkowski, an architect.
