Royal Academy architectural ethics debate


What is so sad about this is the delusional nature of the architect's influence in 2016. I recently heard that a prominent Manchester region residential developer won't allow architects to even influence the choice of structure and materials...they are basically turned into flunkies that get planning permission with a 'grabby' Local Authority seeing big investment - and who can blame them? The one thing the architect community and architectural press/institutions can do is ensure architects don't get the blame for this re-run of the late60's early 70's. This one is down to the lack of vision and disregard for legacy that is endemic. Name and shame, name and shame - and soon!
