Life Hacks for Architects....

Is the most comprehensive video guide for all designers of the built environment.

All tutorials are made by RIBA Chartered Practice StudioRBA.

Why choose LHFA?

Developed from an internal training brief for new starters into a movement that looks to support the next generation of architects around the world, Life Hacks has grown through a shared passion to share knowledge with those who are designing the spaces around us. We saw that there is a missing link between practical knowledge and ability and that by bridging the gap between education and industry and believed we could do something about it. Life Hacks is a solution to provide a safe space to learn and share skills, to ask questions that may seem obvious and develop new expertise, abilities and networks. We want to bring about a change in how the next generation of architects learn, in a way that is practical, tangible and that makes sense in this digital age.
