The series of talks on architecture is an attempt to find answers to the questions of whether modern cities are friendly to all their inhabitants, how strong stereotypical thinking about public space is, and whether women definitely feel safe and comfortable in this space. Accessibility of toilets in public places, adjusting the environment for mothers with children or people with disabilities are extremely common problems in cities. Specialists Agata Twardoch, Joanna and Wojciech Małecki, Przemo Łukasik and Tomasz Borkowski answer questions about the city’s architecture.

So is there a way to balance the designs to make them both male and female friendly? Perhaps when planning urban infrastructure, it is worthwhile to do so together with women? We will try to answer these questions together with specialists: Agata Twardoch, Joanna and Wojciech Malecki, Przemo Lukasik and Tomasz Borkowski.
