Watch the full video of (Re)Working Architecture!

(Re)Working Architecture documents an October, 2015 event in which Architecture Lobby members used principles from Theatre of the Oppressed to perform ten scenes that embody current labor conflicts within the field of architecture, discuss said conflicts and, finally, role play alternative, more equitable, futures.

Filmed by Mass Ornament, an award winning video art practice, in October 2015 at the Co-Prosperity Sphere in an event parallel to the Chicago Biennial, the scenes of (Re)Working Architecture have their origin in the Architecture Lobby's 10-point manifesto demanding better labor practices in and changed structures for architecture.

The premiere of (Re)Working Architecture took place on May 20th, 2016 at the Slought Foundation in Philadelphia at an event parallel to the 2016 AIA National Convention.




The Architecture Lobby is an organization of architectural workers advocating for the value of architecture in the general public and for architectural work within the discipline. It believes that the work architects do – aesthetic, technical, social, organizational, environmental, administrative, fiduciary – needs structural change to be more rewarding and more socially relevant. As long as architecture tolerates abusive practices in the office and the construction site, it cannot insist on its role in and for the public good.
