We’re always super impressed to see women strive for success, especially in the olden days, like when equality wasn’t much of a thing. Creating equal opportunities is what we should always aim for. Women who did work for a living, were also expected to take on specific jobs and architecture was not one of them. Until an Emirati female architect caught our attention.
The photo of the mosque designed by the first female Emirai architect was shared to Instagram by Emiratesbooks, where they praised the work.
