We all know that our profession can be quite hard sometimes. From grueling all-nighter at school, through canceled weekends during our unpaid internships, to postpone vacations in our 60-hour senior level position; it is hard to find an architect who was never a victim of “archislavery.” The term came, is currently in the spotlight, recently in the architecture media, with some architects claiming it “a good tradition”, while others were asking for a ban of the practice.

What about you? Have you ever worked for free? Did you ever felt a victim of archislavery?

But, most important, was it worth it? Do you think it is a justified practice?

Let’s meet up and talk about it in our next BAN Meeting!
