About Jane Hastings
Architects around the world have long looked to L. Jane Hastings as an exemplar and professional leader in the field of architecture. She graduated from the University of Washington with a Bachelor of Architecture in 1952 and became one of the earliest women to be licensed as an architect in Washington state. She went on to become the principal of the state's oldest woman-owned architecture firm in 1959 and was an influential member of the International Union of Women Architects in its formative years (and maintains active membership). In 1975, Jane became the first woman president of the Seattle AIA, and in 1992 she became the first woman Chancellor of the AIA's prestigious national honorary society, the College of Fellows. Learn more about Jane on the Docomomo WEWA website.
