Parlour Survey: And What About the Men?


Earlier this year 'All About Architecture' reported on a survey being conducted by Palour: women, equity, architecture, called 'Survey 1: Where do all the women go?'. Now it is the men’s turn!

While the data from the initial survey is being compiled, Parlour would like to know more about the men of Australian architecture. Who are they and what do they do? How are their roles and experiences similar and how are they different? Together the surveys will give a substantial insight into the industry and the profession.

Parlour invites you to help provide an expanded view of what architectural activity can be – it might include practice, academia, research, advocacy, government, policy, regulation, project management, media, allied built environment disciplines and much more. They are also interested to know about men abroad with backgrounds in Australian architecture, and about those who have ‘left’ architecture.

The survey will take approximately 10–15 minutes to complete and will be open until the end of January. Statistics and analysis of the both surveys will be presented on their website over time.
