Archibiz CEO Bec Kempster sat down with four of Australia’s leading small practice architects to discuss how they navigate this tension in their architecture practices. The event, hosted at Brickworks Design Studio in Melbourne, explored some of the challenges that small practice owners face as they try to grow their practices in income and impact.
