Afterword: Working (through) the field : /

ByJane Rendell

What follows are some speculative thoughts on the relation between the terms ‘field’

and ‘work’ articulated in response to the fascinating chapters and projects contained

within Architecture and Field/Work. My purpose is to offer some ideas about how the

research encapsulated within this book can be considered with respect to the wider

context of inter-disciplinary spatial practice and to reflect upon how future research in

architectural design and other practice-led arenas might make productive links between

academia and the profession, specifically, as this book suggests to me, by ‘working

(through) the field’.
