Web link


This primary report presents the important findings of the first major survey of work-related wellbeing of practitioners in the Australian architecture profession, undertaken in 2021.

Worryingly, the findings show that people working in architecture have a lower-than-average quality of life compared with Australian norms, with surprisingly low personal wellbeing, elevated levels of psychological distress, and higher-than-average levels of burnout.

The findings indicate that improving personal wellbeing is an urgent cause of action for the architectural profession.
