What I am going to say here is written from the point of view of architectural practice. There is a substantial fracture between thinking about architecture and engaging in the professional activity, and this has arisen from the way architecture has come to be taught and practised. Some healing work is sorely needed. To begin a dialogue, raise several irritating and persistent questions and share some experience is a valuable opportunity, too rare in the hurly-burly of project work. Exploring some of the ethical dilemmas that generally remain tacit, silent or bottled up is a welcome challenge.
