Who's this

Eva (Bernard) Buhrich

 Eva and Hugh Buhrich came to Australia in 1939 to avoid returning from England to Germany.  Both architects, they initally found work with Moir and Sutherland in Canberra but then settled in Sydney.  

Annoyed about the low pay women architects received, and attracted to writing, Eva Buhrich gave up practising architecture and became a freelance editor and writer for a number of journals . Her columns on architecture and building in the Sydney Morning Herald were widely read and influential.  Bronwyn Hanna believes that Buhrich may have been the first women to writer under her own by-line on architecture in a major Australian publication.
