Architects Anonymous

Architecture events often present idealistic standards of perfection, concealing the challenges architects face beneath the surface. Chris Precht, with six years of experience in Studio Precht, has learned that the initial enthusiasm of architecture often gives way to a heavy responsibility. Creatives protect their work in a competitive industry, showing confidence and success while keeping as private their failures and conflicts. In this lecture, Chris Precht aims to share the shift in perspective that parenthood has revealed to him, underlining the value of sharing struggles and vulnerability alongside successes as a way to grow.
