Wellbeing of Architects project: Survey is live!

We need YOU! To tell us about your experiences of work-related wellbeing in architecture.

Do you think that working in architecture has affected your wellbeing, for better or worse? If there are issues with work-related wellbeing in architecture, what are they, what is contributing to them, and what could be done to improve wellbeing for all?  

These are some of the questions we are exploring in a major, three-year Australian Research Council funded project.

Building on the good work of many other practices and organisations, we are looking to gather the most reliable and comprehensive set of data ever collected about wellbeing in the architecture profession – across Australia, covering all types and sizes of practice, and over time. More information can be found here.

This data will comprise a firm evidence base, from which we can develop resources, toolkits, and practical advice – to help architectural practices, institutions, and organisations to better support their people and create positive work-place cultures.

Further research will also follow, including focus groups, interviews, a further survey with students, and follow-up longitudinal survey in two years.

But we need you to take part, share your experiences, and give us your thoughts!

Participation is entirely voluntary, anonymous, and confidential. Completing the survey will take around 20-23 minutes – so grab a cup of tea and settle in to contribute to better understanding and greater wellbeing in architecture!

Start the survey here 

The survey will be open until August 3.
