‘Working for What?’, Architectural practice is work. Architects are workers. The tropes are well-known: little pay, little sleep, and little dignity. So why do architects resist organisation? Even when bracketed as professionals, creatives, or even civil servants, we are the outliers. This short film demonstrates the day-to-day working life of the architectural worker.
Interview extracts are from real architectural workers, collected through interview and survey over the past 15 months: the experiences of over 100 people working in the industry.
