From now on the practice of architecture has to be a vehicle to effect positive behavior change. We have to move on from being an agent of “The Modern Project” with its “twin killers”1 of continued progress and growth. A project whose main benefactors are currently very busy plotting ways to convince humans in lockdown to go back to consuming Planet Earth’s natural resources and get back to ‘business as usual’ despite the fact that this strategy actively contributes towards accelerating the Climate and Ecological Emergency. Why do we continue to believe these hard-nosed, neoliberal, rightwing, head-cases? How can award-winning architects pledge their commitment to ‘Architects Declare’ one minute and get back to business as usual the next?
