I feel sorry for the protesters misguided use of the AJ junket as lightning rod for their anger and frustration. It is hubris to think that architects have any influence over housing policy. The overheated property market in London is being used as a haymaking exercise for architects as far as I can tell - and why not - this hyper-inflated market is an asset bubble will collapse at some point not too far away ( we should have learned this primary lesson in 2008) - best pump up the pension pot while they can. Maybe the architects should have joined the protesters and helped them design more effective and beautiful paper planes?
