These women have shaped the way we think about contemporary urbanism.

„City Dreamers” is a film about four trailblazing female architects who have been changing our urban environment for the past 90 years. Phyllis Lambert, Blanche Lemco van Ginkel, Cornelia Hahn Oberlander and Denise Scott Brown have been working, observing and thinking about the transformations shaping the cities of today and tomorrow. They may not be household names, but architecture and urban planning aficionados are likely to know that these women have worked with some of the greatest architects of our time, including the likes of Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, Louis Kahn and Robert Venturi. In the course of their inspiring careers, they have left an indelible mark on several cities across North America and Europe. But while the credentials and achievements of these great women deserve to be more widely known and celebrated, they are not the only focus of this feature documentary. “City Dreamers” is above all inspired by what has united these four women throughout their careers: the dream of a fundamentally human and inclusive city.
