Kapital Architecture Labour

Labour
6.30 – 8.00pm, 12 June 2014
Lecture Theatre 1, Darwin Building, Royal College of Art

Contemporary discussions about the unethical living and working conditions of the builders who construct our new urban age, and the icons of architectural celebrity, abound. Three thinkers on labour relations in the construction industry confront the theoretical, practical and the historical to illustrate and explain why understanding the labour process is critical to architecture, despite so often being obscured from architectural vision.
