Editor | The Routledge Companion to Women in Architecture   For the first time, this anthology (hardcover, 33 contributors, 436 p, 143 Ills, ISBN: 978-0367232344, 1st ed. 2021) illuminates the names of pioneering women who over time continue to foster, shape, and build cultural, spiritual, and physical environments in diverse regions around the globe, and uncovers the remarkable evolution of women’s leadership, professional perspectives, craftsmanship, and scholarship in architecture from the preindustrial age to the present. It outlines the stages of women’s expanding engagement, leadership, and contributions to architecture through the centuries, probing broader topographies across time and place and presenting portraits of practicing architects, leaders, teachers, writers, critics, and other kinds of professionals in the built environment. The intertwined research sets out debates, questions, and projects around women in architecture, stimulates broader studies and discussions in emerging areas, and becomes a catalyst for academic programs and future publications on the subject. The novelty of this volume is in presenting not only a collection of case studies but in broadening the discipline by advancing an overview of the topic as a whole. It is an invaluable resource for architectural historians, academics, students, and professionals.

Starting 1976 she consistently exhibited her artwork, including her 5 works from the “Aerial Views” Series based on urban masterplans, in group exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, over the timespan from 2000 to 2007.

Anna’s first academic publication appeared during her third year of study at MARHI, in the volume of the annual Moscow Institute of Architecture XXXIII Academic Conference: Inquiries on Theory and Practice of Architecture and City Planning [Вопросы теории и практики архитектуры и градостроительства], Session V: Theory and History of Architecture and Art, M.: MARHI, 1977. She applied and was awarded her first MARHI Student Travel Grant in 1978 for a presentation “Architecture and Design: Interwoven” [Взаимодействие архитектуры и дизайна] at All-Russian Theoretical Conference Contemporary Design: Critical Inquiries [Проблемы сoвременного проектирования] at Gorky Institute of Civil Engineering [Горьковский инженерно-строительный институт], Apr 1978.

Anna was awarded the State Examination Committee Commendation for Thesis Excellence and a recommendation to continue her study in the PhD Program.

Her professional career as an Architect (April 1980–June 1988) started in Moscow at CNIITIA—Central Academic Research Institute of the Theory of Architecture [ЦНИИТИА Госкомархитектуры при Министерстве Госгражданстроя] under directorship of Prof. Dr. Yuri Stepanovich Yaralov, in the Department of Contemporary International Architecture, Department Head Prof. Dr. Vladimir Lvovich Khait. In 1983 she was concurrently admitted there to the PhD Program in Architectural History and Theory. In 1984–86, following the birth of her son, she was on academic leave; from July 1988, when CNIITIA was restructured into VNIITAG [ВНИИТАГ—Всесоюзный научно-исследовательский институт теории архитектуры и градостроительства, Госкомархитектуры], she was employed at the Department of International Architecture in the academic position of a Junior Research Associate [м.н.с.], later promoted to a Research Associate [н.с.].

Anna, while a staff member at CNIITIA/VNIITAG, was appointed as Assistant Administrator at two last Congresses of the Union of Architects of the USSR—7th Congress, May 12–14, 1981, at the Grand Kremlin Palace and at the Hall of Columns of the House of Unions; and 8th Congress, June 1987, at the Hall of Columns of the House of Unions and at the House of Architects.

During the 1980s, she was the only PhD student undertaking at her own expense five architecture research trips to German Democratic Republic (GDR), without institutional funding available, but feasible thank to assistance and support provided by her family and colleagues: architects and members of academic faculty at a variety of higher education centers in East Germany.

Sokolina received her PhD degree in Theory/History of Architecture and Landmarks Preservation [кандидат архитектуры] from Central Academic Research Institute of Theory of Architecture and Urban Design (VNIITAG), 18.00.01, Moscow 1992, by unanimous vote of the State Commission VAK RF. Dissertation thesis: “Interpreting Traditions in Architecture: East Germany 1945–1990” [Освоение традиций в архитектуре ГДР], academic advisor in Moscow Prof. Dr. Alexander Vasilievich Ryabushin, advisor in East Berlin Prof. Dr. Bruno Flierl, lead opponent Prof. Dr. Andrei Vladimirovich Ikonnikov, 19 esteemed reviewers from Russia and Germany, supporting academic institution—Moscow Institute of Architecture.

In 1986–88, Anna also worked as a Research Associate, on developing the first collaborative groundbreaking international architecture exhibition project, a partnership initiative of the State Shchusev Museum of Architecture and VNIITAG in Moscow, and the Janus Foundation in West Berlin, titled Concepts of Soviet Architecture 1917–1988 [Konzeptionen in der sowjetischen Architektur, 1917–1988] on display at Staatliche Kunsthalle Berlin, 1989.

In 1990, she submitted her professional exhibition according to standards for review by the Executive Admission Committee, received strong endorsement and was voted for as the new member of the prestigious Union of Architects of the USSR/Russia.

In 1992, Anna submitted her paper to the First Junior Architecture Scholars’ Competition of the Union of Architects of Moscow and following two rounds of review, was granted, as a finalist, an International Travel Award to Greece.

In 1992–94, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, as a guest lecturer she was invited by primary academic and professional centers in Germany and France to speak about new Russian architecture. She conducted research, visited over thirty architecture studios and institutions in Moscow, attended 11 professional conferences and architectural exhibitions, interviewed 32 leading architects and architecture authorities, and resourced original illustrations.

In the early 1990s, Sokolina established herself as the first independent woman curator of Paper Architecture exhibitions travelling from post-communist Moscow to Western Europe, responsible for communications, organization, and travelling exhibitions management in collaboration with the Moscow Association of Junior Architects [Mосковское oбъединение молодых архитекторов], President Sergei Timofeyev. She was contracted for organization of exhibition projects: New Architecture Concepts from Moscow at Green Berlin GmbH, Germany, in partnership with the European Academy of the Urban Environment EA.UE Berlin, the Senate of the City of Berlin, in cooperation with UNESCO (1992–93); All Russia, at the City Hall Gallery, Bürgerhaus Gröbenzell, near Munich, Germany (1993), and developed from start to finish, including exhibit design, the New Russian Architecture installation, accompanied by her Open lecture at Ecole d’Architecture de Strasbourg ENSAS, France (1993).

Invited as a guest staff writer in 1992–1996, she developed publication projects, collaborated with publishers and editors, raised funds, wrote and published 14 articles in primary German professional periodicals, among them—Bauwelt/Stadtbauwelt, Berlin; Der Architekt, Bonn; Kommune. Forum für Politik, Ökonomie, Kultur, Frankfurt/Main, and Ambiente, Munich.

In 1993, Sokolina was the first architect from Moscow interviewed in direct broadcast by RIAS Berlin.

Following the political upheaval in Russia (1991), Anna’s extended family in the United States with American roots tracing back to the 1920s, appealed for re-unification. After residing with her family to New York City from Moscow in the late fall of 1994, Anna started her early career in the US as an artist at an art and craft studio in Tribeca, and was also invited to exhibit her first photographs of New York City in the group exhibition funded by Kodak. In 1995–97 she was employed as a Curator of Exhibitions at the newly established R. Tabakman Museum of Contemporary Art in Hudson, NY (8 galleries, 9,000 square feet). She arranged the inauguration of the collection, designed installations of permanent and temporary exhibitions, was responsible for office management, receptions for the artists, the art shop and artists’ studio, media interviews, in collaboration with renowned national and international curators, artists, collections and collectors.

From 1996, as an independent curator she also successively organized art exhibitions: Healing Watercolors, at the Rudolf Steiner Foundation, Harlemville NY; Russia Revisited, at The New York Open Center, NYC, 1997; Four Artists, at The American Education Center, Rego Park NY, 1999; and as a guest curator, in collaboration with Dr. Jennifer Cahn, developed a touring exhibition project Journeys of the Imagination, Exhibits USA, Mid-America Arts AllianceKansas MO, 2001–02 and 2003–04; and designed and arranged the display of Healing Watercolors at Woodbridge Town Library, Woodbridge CT, 2004.

In 2001, Anna was admitted to New York University School of Professional Studies (SPS), Department of Arts, Sciences, and Humanities directed by Dr. Lisa Koenigsberg, and completed all courses in Arts Administration Program as an A-student. She interned: at Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum New York, Curatorial and Education Departments, Sep–Dec 2001; as the recipient of the P. Krueger Scholarship at Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum, New York, Drawings and Prints Department, Jun–Aug 2001; and at the Public Design Commission/Art Commission of the City of New York at The Mayor’s Office (Rudolph W. L. Giuliani), 10/1997–2/1999, where she studied and assisted with organization of the online database of municipal collections of architecture, art, and photography.

Awarded the Peter Krueger Scholarship at Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum, over the Summer Semester of 2001 Sokolina interned in the Drawing and Prints Department relocated from temporary spaces into the newly reopened area designed by the NYC studio James Stewart Polshek Architect. The new glorious office spaces however had an unresolved air conditioning issue. Following the Corbusian open plan concept, the shelves where the world-renowned collection was housed, were organized instantly adjacent to the office area and without protective walls. To conform to the climate requirements for an archive of works on paper, cooling appliances have been installed along the perimeter of the integral space, directly into window frames facing workstations and office desks of employees. During hot summer months freezing air currents surged across all areas of the new department. For Anna, this phenomenon magnified the holistic idea of compassionate architecture, and what it takes to be an architect; of a structure as a living organism in-building, as an alternative to utilitarian modernism. This also stimulated her collaboration with publisher and inspired the completion of the project she initiated back in the 1990s—her book Architecture and Anthroposophy.

The Smithsonian interns were provided with access to museum resources, meetings of museum staff under new directorship, and to a variety of experiences, such as internal museum tours, workshops in the Pentagram Studio and Martha Stewart headquarters, discussions with recognized architects, and direct conversations with astronauts orbiting Earth at that time. Anna was also responsible for organizing network lists for the Museum and contributed to weekly summer concerts on the green.

Her Fall Semester internship at the Guggenheim Museum New York started on Monday, September 10, 2001 in the Curatorial Department located in SoHo on Broadway between Prince and Spring Street on fourth floor over the Guggenheim Art Gallery. On September 11, Anna witnessed the terrorist attack, the physical catastrophe, and personally experienced the shock and human tragedy of devastation of the magnificent city. At the Guggenheim, she was responsible for the assessment of the International Artist Program, and she mailed responses to dozens of globally recognized applicants. She also narrated précises on bibliographic references for catalogues to accompany planned exhibitions, “Kazimir Malevich. Suprematism” and “Photographs from The Brill Collection,” and conducted research at the Guggenheim Library next to the Curatorial Department, and at New York Central Public Library on 476 Fifth Avenue between 41st and 42nd Street. In November of 2001, Anna was reassigned to work at the Internship Office of the Education Department facilitated in the lower level of the main Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum building on 1071 Fifth Avenue, for assessment of next semester internship applications from across continents. During that internship, Anna collaborated in many instances with museum’ authorities and peers—Thomas Krens, Nicolas Iljine, Min Yung Kim, Susan Greenberg Fisher, Anna Vallye, et al. Shortly after the tragedy of September 11th, the municipal, state, and corporate funding for planned construction of the new gargantuan museum’s structure designed by Gehry Partners LLP in the Southport was withdrawn, the plans for new hire of hundreds of employees were abandoned, and there have been two layoffs of museum staff: 20% in December followed by 20% in March of 2002.
