It is an OWA tradition to have a gift giving party at the end of the year. We will collect gifts to be taken to a shelter in the Bay Area. This year we are planning to deliver our gifts to Hamilton Family Center in San Francisco. You can bring items for men, women, teens and children. There is no need to wrap your gifts. The organizers of the Center would like to review the gifts and distribute them accordingly.
If you cannot attend this function and would like to contribute, you can bring your gifts to one of the steering committee members or send your check to our mail box and make checks payable to Hamilton Family Center.

During my recent trip to Barcelona I contacted D'vora Treisman, OWA's former Administrative Assistant who had moved to Barcelona a while ago. D'vora, my German friends and I spent a lovely day exploring some of the architectural gems of Barcelona and enjoying a delicious lunch near Gaudi's fascinating Casa Mila. Since Barcelona is quite expensive D'vora and her husband are contemplating moving to Tarragona, a small coastal town about 50 miles south of Barcelona, and are in the process of looking at apartments. You can reach D'vora at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I also tried to find out whether there was a group of women architects in Barcelona by contacting the Colegio de Arquitectos (equivalent to the AIA). Since there are only groups in Madrid they provided me with the phone number of Anna Bofill, an architect who is interested in issues concerning women architects. One evening in a long phone conversation I found out that many years ago she had been to California and met, among other women, Mui Ho. Anna and her well-known brother Ricardo Bofill worked together for 17 years in the Taller de Arquitectura. She retired from architecture to pursue her passion of music as a composer.
