“Designed to fill in professional development gaps”

The Vision

Architecture is arguably one of life’s greatest undertakings. It requires many qualities from professionals within the architecture community – such as courage, imagination, co-ordination and endurance – in order to reach and complete a client’s agreed deliverables. This challenge alone is compounded further by other professional hurdles that exist within the architecture industry, namely the theory-to-practice divide, increasing construction complexity and the industry by nature operating as a minefield. Trying to keep on top of this moving target is difficult!

In order to address these difficulties, Archifiller™ was launched – an online educational platform that is “designed to fill in professional development gaps” for the architecture community. This is achieved by providing valuable editorials, products and services that are filled with industry knowledge, skills and experience to help the architecture community stay ahead of the professional challenges they face.

Archifiller™ is aimed at saving professionals within the architecture community time, money and energy – no matter what stage they are at in their career – allowing them to invest in greater project delivery, more professional responsibility, and ultimately, better employment success.

The Values

Archifiller™ is principled in maintaining professional strengths while simultaneously highlighting and filling in professional weaknesses. With that being said, editorials are compartmentalised into the following areas of knowledge, areas that are relative to the scope of services provided and the professionalism expected by those who operate within the architecture community. They are:

  • Design thinking
  • Documentation
  • Project Delivery
  • Practice Management
  • Property Development
  • Urban Planning and Design

The depth and breadth of professional development inherent in these areas of knowledge will be unpacked through the Archifiller™ educational platform. This will in turn build a resourceful body of work over time that professionals within the architecture community can refer to and channel into their own practices at their leisure.
