The Architecture Lobby is pleased to announce our first Bay Area Think In, which will focus on the state of architectural labor, the profession, education, and the public perception of architects.
The Architecture Lobby is a national organization of architectural workers advocating for the value of architectural work both within the general public was well as within the discipline. The Lobby was formed three years ago by young architects, students, and established practitioners as a decentralized organization across the country. Committed to upholding the highest standards of inclusiveness, democratic governance, and transparency, the Lobby is now a non-profit organization with hundreds of members and strong chapters active in New York City, Chicago, Tampa, Denver, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Los Angeles, and the San Francisco Bay Area.
On Friday, January 13, from 5pm-9pm, the Architecture Lobby will host a “Think-In” at Gensler Oakland, where invited panelists and a professional facilitator will critically debate and discuss topics most integral to the aims of the Architecture Lobby including: labor, fees and wages in a contemporary economy, the pros and cons of contemporary professionalization, architectural institutions, and media and the public perception of architecture. The Think-In is free and open to the public, and all interested students, academics, or practitioners are strongly encouraged to join the discussion. Food and drink will also be served.
