BOOK: Practice Practice
Media Shelf: Professional Practice

The recently reignited labour movement has inspired architects to consider alternative modes of professional design practice such as the worker-owned co-operative, a structure that author and activist Ashton Hamm attests fosters more equitable, democratic and empowering working environments. Since opening one herself (Uxo Architects), Hamm has become something of an expert on the subject. Following an account of the history of co-ops in Part 1, Part 2 breaks down their legal frameworks. Part 3 builds on these insights through an interview with the longest-standing architectural co-operative in the United States, South Mountain Company.
