Women in Architecture series: Amanda Williams

The School of Architecture's inaugural Women in Architecture lecture series wraps up Oct. 23 with Amanda Williams, founder of AW Studio.

Williams bridges the worlds of art and architecture in powerful work that challenges our sense of place and explores cultural implications.

She earned a bachelor of architecture at Cornell University before shifting into an artistic practice that involves installations and site-specific work, often placed in neighborhoods on the South Side of Chicago.

Williams' "Chicago Works" solo exhibition continues at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago through December. She is a creative consultant on the Obama Presidential Library and her work has been featured in numerous other exhibitions, including the Chicago Architecture Biennial.

The lecture series is co-sponsored by the Clemson Architectural Foundation and the American Institute of Architects Charleston.

"Architecture tends to be a male-dominated industry and it is a goal of ours to showcase the diversity that exists within the field," said Andreea Mihalache, assistant architecture professor at Clemson. "So when we met to plan this year’s series, I saw an opportunity for us to create a dialogue around women in architecture and the impact they've had."
