ABOUT THE ISSUE
With this issue Design Essentia launches its second edition for the year 2020.
As the first female star architect, Zaha Hadid had an enormous impact on the perceived status of women in design. Zaha Hadid, Kazuyo Sejima, Yvonne Farrell, Shelley McNamara, Carme Pigem, Kelly Wearstler and many more have been the top women inspirations in design, who have proved that they are no less then men in the society and I would say women are rather doing way better than men today.
DE introduces its special Women’s Edition featuring the design stories of some top women in design. This edition’s theme is Women Who Inspire. Strong creative women creating some serious design goals for us to follow are here to inspire us and share their unique female design experience that nobody talks about, but should.
DE spotlight includes my conversation with one of the top female design mentor Brinda Somaya – the principal architect at Somaya and Kalappa Consultants, who shares her design journey till now. Also know about the trending Swedish girl who started a revolution for climate activism around the world challenging world leaders.
The art on the cover is called the “Women’s March” by illustrator Valery Lemay done for the Women’s March movement 2017.

So, let’s celebrate all the women who inspire.
