When you hear the word “Architect”, what image springs to mind?
A brilliant blog post by Ross Weinreb has been doing the rounds for a couple of weeks, and being a bit behind, I chanced upon it this morning. It’s called “Architects: As Seen on TV!” and chronicles an amusing google search of images of architects.
Today architects don’t routinely use drawing boards, rotring pens and protractors. The vast proportion in the UK are also white middle-class men, but not all.
It seems to me that there is a need here, a need for good images of real architects.
With this in mind I have set up a flickr group to collect, share and discuss images of real architects, images which express who they are, and what they aspire to be.
The first job is to find a group icon, I am open to suggestions. Why not join us?
