Event description
Architecture is awash with abuse

About this Event

The Negroni Talks – hosted by architects Fourthspace and sponsored by Campari – were set up to capture the lively and provocative debates that took place in the European café culture of the early twentieth century.

Office culture in architecture isn't working. Long hours and low pay are standard, all nighters are a badge of honour, and leaving on time is derided as 'working for the clock'.

Competition for projects, demanding clients and a shrinking economy are to blame but isn't that the same for most other creative industries? Why is architecture as a profession so notoriously tough on staff? Is it passion for the craft that piles on the pressure? An old-school macho mentality? Or does it all stem from the unit-system in education?

The industry is changing, but what needs to be done? Who's being marginalised in practice? Who is creating a work environment that's open to and safe for all? And who are the real bullies?

Speakers:

India Block, Dezeen (chair)

Fiona Scott, Gort Scott Architects

Sarah Castle, IF_DO

Tyen Masten, Phase 3

United Voices of the World - Section of Architectural Workers
