On November 2014 the Arquitetas Invisíveis collective received financial support from the Academic Center of the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism (CAFAU/UnB) of the University of Brasília, and launched its first physical exhibition. The exhibition was seen by around 600 people and presented a compilation of the lives and work of 26 female architects, being divided into six groups: the pioneers, in the shadows, landscape design, architecture, urbanism and social work. Historically, the exhibition introduced the visitor to the difficulties encountered by the first women to graduate in the discipline, followed by the lack of prestige that many of them had working alongside the great names of architecture, concluding with the exponent names of contemporary architecture, introducing the public to an immense repertoire of works.

Parallel to the exhibition, talks, round tables, workshops and movie and documentary screenings were organized, seeking to deepen the understanding of the relation between gender and professional performance, the role of women in architecture, the relevance of gender discussion, the production by women in the field of furniture design, the relation of the female body and the city in Brazilian cinema, the invisibility of the production of architecture and urbanism done by women, the relations between gender and race, the relevance of actions regarding education and public policies, among other themes.
