Editor's Note: ArchiteXX is excited to announce the third sub_teXXt guest editorship, Point Line Projects (PLP). PLP is a Pittsburgh-based editorial and curatorial agency devoted to architecture and design. Originally published as part of a larger series, En Pointe, these interviews have been reformatted and in some cases re-edited for sub_teXXt.

En Pointe is a series of conversations that emerged from simply wanting to learn more about the people, projects, and practices we admire and collaborate with. We’ve sought out a diverse range of voices, including architects, philanthropists, writers, educators, artists, and designers and have selected from these conversations women whose creative approaches result in impactful projects. These fifteen women have established their own nonprofits (Kilolo Luckett, Victoria Newhouse); conducted celebrated research (Ioanna Theocharopoulou, Fernanda Canales, Daniela Sandler); used art and architecture to build agency (Mitch McEwen, Amanda Williams, Mary Lou Arscott); and told provocative stories through performance and curatorial practice (Ingrid Schaffner, Elizabeth Czartoryski).

Whether within or just outside of architectural discourse, these women lead through their scholarly contributions, creative approaches, and critical questioning of the status quo.

Point Line Projects seeks to encourage critical and engaged discourse around art, architecture, and design professions. Over the next fifteen weeks, beginning with visual artist, Elizabeth Czartoryski, we will share the ideas and practices of people that make us excited about the continued leadership and impact of women in architecture and the creative professions.
