They don’t all wear black

Have you ever wanted to know what an architect looks like? Well now here is your chance through the creation of the Visual Sociologoy of Architects project. The project is the brainchild of Naomi Stead, Sandra Kaji-O’Grady, and Kate Sweetapple who set out to collect an archive of documentary-style photographic images of participants at the recent AIA conference extra/ordinary. It aimed to draw upon objectivist serial art practices established in the 1960s, the project proposed a visual sociology of architects, observing visual traits, patterns and distinctions, towards a visual sociology of architectural culture at this particular historic moment. All I can say is that they don’t all wear black like my former work colleague Josh McAlister, below.
