The Social Component

2009/05/25 § Leave a comment

Lately I’ve been struggling with the receiving end of the process of architecture. Essentially, who are the parties that stand to benefit from the endeavors of practice. What I see in my built environment and on the blogs/internet has left me with a feeling that architecture is a rich man’s game. More and more private development, more and more lifestyle branding. Give an architect a week and a couple of under-payed interns and they will be able to dream up new forms rationalized by nothing more than “I think I can, therefore I will.” The process is compounded over and over and over.

Which makes this all the more refreshing.
