Alternative Practice


This investigated other forms of organisation of architects' offices based around the concept
of cooperative working and shared equity. Several members went on to establish their own practices adopting such
models. A pre-eminent example was Support Community Building Design, which emerged from a small group of
graduates from the Architectural Association which went on to create a cooperative practice focused on potential client
groups in society which traditionally were not the beneficiaries of the architectural profession which, we would have
said, was essentially the handmaiden of capital. These groups eventually included local authority tenants, women's
groups including refuges, ‘black’ i.e. racially self-defined groups.
