abusive architecture job posting of the week
April 20, 2009, 7:21 pm
Filed under: Architecture, Economy, Work Life
The economy is bad, and there are lots of architects out of work, but no need for this level of abuse.

“We are looking for interns unafraid to question the basic premises of architecture and to operate far beyond its boundaries, in territories more familiar to history, philosophy, economics, and religion. AUDC is a radical architecture practice….Please see our Web site http://www.audc.org/ and our book, Blue Monday, for more about us. Please do not apply if you have not looked at these…AUDC principals will be in the office three to five days a week, but interns are expected to be self-starters…. AUDC is a radical architecture practice that is a labor of love, not a for-profit….We regret that all internships in 2009 are unpaid, … .Please bring your own computers and software (e.g. CS4, CAD, Office). … PCs are acceptable…..We look to fill three positions, one centered on video, one on graphics, and one on research. Application to be submitted as a single PDF (8MB maximum) document including:
Cover letter
Resume/CV
Portfolio
Letters of recommendation”

Good grief, letters of recommendation for an unpaid internship where you are expected to provide your own computer and thousands of dollars of software??
