Comprising a set of essays for and about architectural workers in Europe, this book takes stock of the many people and attitudes involved in the production of architecture. It is for workers who are appalled and disillusioned but who are still part of the architectural industry. For those who are trying to reconcile their dismay with the need to make a living, but who also hold onto a cautious sense of optimism that things will change. Marisa Cortright’s critique of architectural work draws from the direct experiences of architectural workers in Europe, including her own, to address the ideological truths that keep the embattled industry afloat. With an introduction by theorist Douglas Spencer.
