    Simon Blackburn and Phil Parker have responded to this email correctly. The others make me ashamed to be an architect

  • Comment on: Student survey: Only the rich need apply to study architecture

    Why do we insist on talking about Middle-Class people? we're not, were talking about sections of the upper classes, particularly by this definition: "The upper classes tolerate the system but know the right people to speak to if they feel the need to bypass any part of it"

  • Comment on: Race Diversity Survey: is architecture in denial?

    thanks Chris. People like yourself give hope to the marginalised, that we can actually 'get there' as a society and a profession, even though it may be my grandchildren who will now...maybe. my children (2 boys) certainly wont get any encouragement from me to join profession. even my mum has questioned my career choice recently...im a qualified architect with several years exp! not a good advert for the RIBA tho...

  • Comment on: Architecture should have the widest gene pool to draw from

    Following on from this rather reasonable and understandable piece (except that it must be mentioned that gender equality in architecture schools isn't enough)The real problem with privilege and lack of diversity is that society is robbed of the best possible profession, the built environment suffers and we all suffer. I think the profession has gone completely AWOL. As far as society is concerned it has retreated both literally and figuratively into the architectural equivalent of Made In Chelsea. The profession increasingly doesn't care what society gets up to and society increasingly isn't bothered what architects so.
