Ethics and architecture: Where do you draw the line?


There is certainly a job of work to be done to prevent a repetition of this travesty and I can see two major strands for the professional institutes that represent our interests: Firstly, we should take up the recommendations of Paul Morell's Edge Commission report that the professional institutes should join forces on a code of ethical conduct. Secondly, the institutes should support their members who wrestle to deliver the best possible outcomes in less than satisfactory circumstances by clarifying what is, and what is not in their control. Peter Oborn, the RIBA's Vice President for international practice (currently on a mission in Iran) champions the cause at Portland Place and deserves our support in his efforts to create an appropriate and safe context for practice at home and abroad.
