The Architecture Lobby

The Architecture Lobby is an organization of workers in the architecture industry and allied disciplines 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. The Lobby believes as long as the discipline of architecture tolerates abusive practices--in its workplaces, in its schools, and on the building site--it cannot insist on its role in and for the public good. Founded in NYC in 2013, the Lobby has over a dozen active chapters in the US; in 2019 the Victoria chapter formed in Australia.
