Comprising a set of essays for and about architectural workers in Europe, this book takes stock of the many people and attitudes involved in the production of architecture.

Drawing from the experiences and misgivings of architectural workers across Europe, including her own, Marisa Cortright argues that architectural workers would do well to recognize themselves as workers. In so doing, she suggests, they would be better disposed to challenge extractive and oppressive modes of architectural production.

These essays on Architectural Workers, Organizing, and Europe link localized discontent and disappointment with the architectural industry to broader currents in anticapitalist struggle, from prison abolition to climate justice. By expanding what forms of collective action constitute “organizing” and questioning the ongoing project of “Europe,” this text sets forth a critique of architectural work beyond architecture. With an introduction by theorist Douglas Spencer.


Marisa Cortright is an architectural worker based in Zagreb, Croatia. Prior to publishing “‘Can This Be? Surely This Cannot Be?’ Architectural Workers Organizing in Europe,” she contributed to the exhibition “Safe Spaces – The Right to Space” at the Arcam and urged Death to the Calling in Failed Architecture.
