Presented by Rory Hyde & Uro Publications as part of Melbourne Design Week & Melbourne Art Book Fair

What can you do with a degree in architecture? Where might it take you? What kind of challenges could you address?

Architects After Architecture reframes architecture as a uniquely versatile way of acting on the world, far beyond that of designing buildings. It features 40 practitioners who have used their architectural training in new and resourceful ways to tackle the climate crisis, work with refugees, advocate for diversity, start tech companies, become leading museum curators, tackle homelessness, draft public policy, become developers, design video games, shape public discourse, and much more.

Co-editor Rory Hyde will introduce the book, followed by signing and drinks hosted by Uro Bookshop.
