Guerrilla Tactics 2021: Stop, Collaborate and Listen

This year’s Guerrilla Tactics calls on architects to recognise the power of collaboration for winning work, levelling up their skills, and fostering resilience. It will ask how practices can lift each other up by pooling knowledge and resources without fear of competitive behaviour; how large and small practices can leverage their unique advantages for shared benefit; and how digital relationships can transcend local networks.
