The Architecture Drilldown

On this International Women’s Day, it’s a mixed bag of news about overworked staff, under-utilised women, men and women taking home some major prizes, and an analysis of what last week’s VCAT Lacrosse fire decision means for architects. There’s also some great new research - discussions and findings - to incorporate into your practice comms.
