‘… And What About the Men’ is a counterpart to the first Parlour survey, ‘Where do all the women go?’ It asked who are the men of Australian Architecture and what do they do? How are their roles and experiences similar and how are they different?
Together the surveys give substantial insight into the industry and the profession.
Both surveys take an expanded view of what architectural activity can be – it might include practice, academia, research, advocacy, government, policy, regulation, project management, media, allied built environment disciplines and much more. We are also interested to know about men abroad with backgrounds in Australian architecture, and about those who have ‘left’ architecture.
