Architecture has a big problem, and its name is labor. Everyone in the profession knows it, and yet no one wants to talk about it. In a fierce industry where overwork and undervalued labor are elevated as virtues, those architects—particularly younger architects fresh out of school—who are moved to speak up are quickly dissuaded from doing so. The message is simple: forget your social life; make do with your meager wage; pay your dues. If you can’t handle all of that, then architecture isn’t for you.
I enjoy studies of things; artists and designers work as a continuation and progression rather than a perfect final piece. Most of the time this lends itself to photosets.
Reblogs and likes are great, and I appreciate that some people like what I try and do here. But that isn’t the main goal. The principal is to have a repository of architecture/design/art that challenges me to think a bit differently.
