ARCHLOGBOOK Chats (w Gabriel Chek)


ARCHLOGBOOK Chats is a brand new podcast where I, Gabriel Chek, sit down with architecture students, designers, practitioners and academics to discuss the various challenges, acheivements and opportunities in the education and practice of Architecture.

Graduating from Architecture School soon? You would want to tune in as I discuss all things relating to the challenges faced as fresh grads and how we can respond to the various issues that may be faced when starting out.

I chat with the creators behind the architecture content platform ArchiDabble – 3 students studying architecture based in the UK, comprising of Sude, Linda and Elif from the University of Westminster.

We talked about many topics, including:
