Watch: ‘Architecture for All’ film on diversity in education


Was Architecture ever on the syllabus? Involving so many different disciplines it should have a permanent place in the school timetable. If not to train members of the construction industry, then educate the clients of the future? Retrospectively we also need to introduce older people to the problems, challenges and pleasures of our craft. In any major project one has to involve local people as part of a planning application, and inevitably one is met by a negative attitude, and certainly the newly retired have too much time to obfuscate and extend the process. As Hundertwasser stated in the Mould Manifesto, if it doesn’t involve the designer, builder and the client, in the widest sense, architecture is a crime. Every town should have an evening school with walking tours to introduce all to the history techniques of architecture. Make friends, and get some exercise?!
