Helping architects to rethink their practice
Supporting architects in uncovering better ways to work.

Let’s get curious together

In architectural practice we generally focus on answers. At unmeasured I’m more interested in the questions. Here are some questions I’m committing to being curious about:

Architects are highly skilled, in what ways might they better leverage those skills for their own benefit as well as for doing more than delivering a building?

Why do we always do it this way? How might we do it better?

How might architects learn to be better leaders for the benefit of the culture of the profession, our community and public?

How might architects listen better to the questions and answers of others, rather than to our own answers?

What’s the untapped resource for public good that exists within the architecture community?

You have the ability to improve your architectural practice.
Making change happen by better utilising skills you already have, learning new skills, acquiring new tools and developing better strategies for your practice.

“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but building the new.” – Socrates

unmeasured works with you to help you to...

• rethink your architectural practice

Identifying what works, what doesn’t and developing iterative strategies to build your practice into one that sustains you and brings you joy.

• leverage your architecting skills

You need a shedload of skills to realise a building for your clients. Architect’s underutilise and undervalue these skills they already have. unmeasured helps you to leverage these skills in your practice.

• build your human skills

Working with architects to build on their skills and nurture those human skills essential for all the work you do in your practice.

• embrace the possibilities

Think more holistically. Developing your skills for leadership, empathy, trust, marketing, decision making, and more. When all are combined you will achieve more than you realised was possible.

Architects are good at inventing possibility for their clients, unmeasured teaches you to embrace that possibility for yourself.

Hi! I'm Michael...

and I’m unmeasured.

I’m an architect and coach curious about the assumptions of architectural practice. I help architects rethink their practice and support them in uncovering better ways to work. I have worked in architecture for over 25 years, as an employee and for 14 years in my own practice. I understand architectural practice from the inside out.

I’m here to support you to make better work, be a better human and to build a better architecture practice – interestingly these are all inter-connected. It takes questions, challenging the status quo, deep listening and by showing up with something better. That means shifting the way you think and lead. Better utilising the skills you already have as well as developing better human skills and tools to serve you in the work you do.

I work with you or your practice, either focusing in on particular skillsets or in broader strategic and more holistic ways in all areas of your practice.

Fun Fact: my NSW architect’s registration is #10 007 and I have a license to skill.
