The Invisible Workflows Project is an intellectual platform that combines academic and professional work to theorize about the workflows that affect the production of architecture. Workflows are the space of contemplation afforded by the technical systems we use to produce work. Many modes of contemporary architectural production continue to prop-up user manuals as novel theories. Workflows are not user manuals.
Workflows bind the material and immaterial systems that make architecture a form of cultural production. To enmesh ourselves in this production it is necessary to link underexamined historical contexts, overlooked present circumstances, and unimagined futures.
These systems contribute to the social, economic, and political processes that define the problematic relationship between architecture and labor. The banality of means of production is at the center of The Invisible Workflows Project.

Iman Ebadi Paskiabi is an architectural associate at Stone Group Architects and an adjunct instructor in the Department of Architecture (DoArch) at South Dakota State University, where he completed his M.Arch degree. Since 2007 he’s been studying parallel to teaching and practicing architecture. Prior to attending DoArch, he graduated with a B.Arch and M.U.D degrees from the Shahid Rajaee Teacher Training University, in his home country of Iran. For ten years, Iman has worked to understand the implications of using Autodesk Revit as a design medium rather than an autonomous drafting tool.
