Myra Warhaftig was a remarkable architect and building researcher whose buildings and publications have had and still have a great impact and whose research will probably continue to have a great impact in the future. She took up or advanced a very unique and still important approach to architecture, namely floor plan research, the improvement and optimisation of the flat floor plan for the emancipation of women, for the reorganisation of family life. Her second focus was on historical building research. Through her work and research, many Jewish architects who were persecuted, disenfranchised, discriminated against, expelled, deported and murdered by the National Socialists have been saved from final oblivion and rehabilitated. This publication documents the results of the academic symposium 'Myra Warhaftig Architektin und Bauforscherin' (Myra Warhaftig Architect and Building Researcher), which was held by the Society for Research into the Lives and Work of German-Speaking Jewish Architects from 17 to 18 May 2018 at the Institute of Architecture of the Technical University of Berlin.
