AIT 6.2021 Bar Hotel Restaurant – Special: Women in Architecture and Interior Design
Gastronomy is alive! We provide proof of this good news in this issue of AIT on the topic of Bar Hotel Restaurant. In recent months, restaurateurs in particular have suffered from the pandemic-related restrictions – good news for those who were able to make a virtue out of necessity and used the time of closure for a concept revision or even a new start. This is what happened in the expressive, independent and remarkable bars, restaurants and hotels in Stuttgart, Nuremberg, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Berlin, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, London, Basel, Valencia or Barcelona.
The “Women in Architecture Festival Berlin 2021”, which started on 1 June, will unfortunately still have to take place largely without the presence of female visitors. However, this has encouraged us to show in a special section in this issue of AIT that women are more present than ever in interior/architecture! We dedicate ourselves to the topic of “Women in Architecture and Interior Design” with a selection of portraits of female interior/architectural designers, a calendar of events as well as interviews with remarkable representatives of our profession – brilliant: the 95-year-old Elisabeth Kiefner. In the series section, too, everything revolves around female protagonists and it goes without saying that a large part of our selected gastronomy projects were developed by women or with their participation.
Architects, interior designers, designers, interior designers and lighting planners from almost 30 countries around the world read AIT. Almost 25 percent of the circulation is delivered abroad, which is why the ten editions of AIT are bilingual – German/English. AIT is the official organ of the BDIA (Bund Deutscher Innenarchitekten).
