What to change

Architects may not be able to change society but we may be able to change architecture. And we may do so by learning from society.

Freedom?

To be confined to a tiny box of metal; to sit there inactive and immovable, is that freedom?

Development

In India, life expectancy has increased from 32 years in 1951 to 66 years today. In China, several hundred million people have escaped extreme poverty since 1981.

What did we, who had all the scientific and technological advantages, achieve?

Faster cars and bigger television screens?
