dRMM hits back at ‘perceived hypocrisy’ in row over Silvertown Tunnel job


The phrase "the practice had taken the decision to be involved in order to try to make the project more sustainable" could be used to justify working on any project, including coal power stations if it came to it. That said, the new Silvertown Tunnel could be argued to be a good solution in that it will reduce pollution creating bottlenecks in the Blackwall Tunnel and will allow better bus links across the river. All architects and consultants need to think carefully before they proclaim a strong stance against selected perceived "unsustainable" projects. They will find that virtually any building project could be argued to be "unsustainable" in that they will involve carbon emissions and pollution. Are architects prepared to accept less work as a price to pay for stopping new infrastructure projects?
