Encouraging advocacy and activism in architecture
Presented by RMIT Design Hub, Workaround was an exhibition of 14 female practitioners focused on advocacy and activism in an expanded field of architecture.
Featuring individuals working toward positive change in the built environment and its surrounding cultures, the exhibition took shape as 14 “episodes” broadcast live from the Design Hub and at various locations around the city. Drawing from broadcast vernacular past and present, and retaining the same sense of dynamic energy associated with a live news program, the identity encapsulated the idea of broadcasting as a means of advocacy—promoting ideas and exchange.
It started to fall into place when we came up with the concept of the ‘workaround’—which of course is about work but it’s also about finding ways of continuing working given obstacles.
