We see this film as a way to bring to life a discussion that has largely been taking place without all of the vested stakeholders. Through our innovative distribution model of over 140 DIY self-hosted screenings through design firms, AIA and AIAS chapters, schools, K-12 design organizations, film societies and festivals around the world, the film has been used as the bait to bring together students, professors, practitioners and leaders for a truly dynamic and productive "#Archichat" discussion about architecture education and the future of the architectural profession.


Below are some of the recorded DIY self-hosted screening discussions to help ensure these conversations live on beyond the physical events. Please watch and join the conversation online using the #Archichat tag shown in the column to the right.
