|Abstract: ||Architecture represents a creative, high profile and influential profession and yet remains undertheorized
from a gender perspective. This article examines how gender is (re)produced in
architecture, a profession that remains strangely under-researched given its status and position.
The empirical work advances the theoretical concept of hegemonic masculinity via an analysis
of gendered working practices and the agency of individuals through resistance and complicity
with these norms. It reveals how architectural practice relies on long working hours, homosocial
behaviour and creative control. However, whereas women perform their gender in ways which
reproduce such gendered norms, white, heterosexual, middle class men can transgress them to
challenge aspects of practice culture. This has significant implications for understanding the ways
in which hegemonic masculinities are reproduced within creative workplaces.|
