Women across the globe move architecture forward every day. We spoke with Estonian architects Hanna-Liisa Mõtus and Karin Harkmaa about their recent projects, their design approach, and their experiences working in a male-dominated field.

It must be daunting to design a school. Think about it: many will treat your project as a second home — at such a young age, their environment is bound to shape them. For the rest of their lives.
The landscape architecture industry, as it moves to standardize BIM workflows, is experiencing a transition not unlike moving from hand drawings to CAD drafting.
Landscape architects increasingly feel pressured to integrate BIM into their workflows to maintain ownership of the entire design and build process. This transition seems daunting, perhaps even unachievable, but several firms are up for the task.

In recent years, digital design has seen a transformation with the implementation of BIM, or Building Information Modeling, the concept that data be attached to its corresponding digital model. The idea here is to ease communication between project partners by having one point-of-reference, one model that can be used through all design phases — from sketching to construction.
