Architexts: Volume 5

Five years. Some people would have sought greener pastures by now, but not the employees of Franklin + Newbury Architects. The entire gang is still here, and even more frustrated than ever. Annoying clients. Unresponsive consultants. Meager paychecks. Lackluster projects. Or as we like to call it, another year of the sad reality that is working in an architecture firm.

This collection includes all of all the comics from the fifth year of Architexts and some bonus material.

Architexts: Volume 4

Just because it is a new year, doesn’t mean it is going to be any different than the last. Actually, it is more of that same at Franklin + Newbury Architects. Not only does the CAD software crash, but the BIM software does, too. RFPs with ‘not to exceed’ project fees that barely cover the schematic design phase are the norm. Timesheets still need to be filled out, and contractors continue to go out of their way to create problems. These are the (mostly) true stories about working in an architectural firm. This collection includes all of all the comics from the fourth year of Architexts and some bonus material.

It’s another year of dealing with annoying engineers, unsavory measuring conditions, and a plotter that always breaks down at the worst times. ARCHITEXTS: VOLUME 3 includes all of the comics from the third year of Architexts and some bonus material.
