What Kind of Architect are You? by Udo Greinacher
ORO Editions, March 16, 2021

Jeffrey L. Day, FAIA and E.B. Min of Actual Architecture Co.’s predecessor office Min | Day talk about collaborative practice in a new book by Udo Greinacher that offers a corrective to the myth of the “starchitect”.

“Architecture is commonplace. We inhabit it and use it; it is constantly present; it serves as foreground and background and usually has a story to tell. But apart from its most illustrious makers, we know almost nothing about the people who conceived it: the architects. What Kind of Architect Are You? offers a glimpse into a vast array of professional possibilities and points out meaningful alternatives to the prevailing myth of the “starchitect.” It provides those in search of an architect with insights into how we work and helps them to formulate expectations. It challenges practitioners to think introspectively and examine how they fit into the architectural spectrum. And finally, the collection documents the cross-section of cultural and architectural practice across America.”
