'Designing Women Seek Rightful Place' by Lucy Treep and Lynda Simmons
pp18-19, Koha, Issue One, NZIA
In response to an email received from Matt Ritani in 2014, regarding access (or restrictions) to the Architecture+Women•NZ membership (database), A+W•NZ Co-Chair Lynda Simmons wrote a Letter to the Editor of the architecturenz magazine. The email questioned the inclusion or otherwise of trans*women in the A+W•NZ community, and prompted the public reply as a way to remind all in the architectural community that A+W•NZ was set up with 'visible' and 'inclusive' as the two core aims - ie. to remove barriers which keep so many unseen.

HOME Magazine February / March 2014
On the last page of each issue, HOME magazine publishes a 'My Favourite Building' image and commentary. The Feb/March issue has a favourite by Lynda Simmons, one of the co-founders of A+W•NZ. She chose The Teps, because of its personal historic and current links between her grandfather and her children, and because of its historic and current role it plays in the city. And for its interior beauty, combining light, water and shadow.
