As architects, we need to be engaged in social issues. Whitney Young said it in 1968: “You are not a profession that has distinguished itself by your social and civic contributions to the cause of civil rights.” That’s still true to a certain extent. We’re not accessing a holistic cross-section of the United States, from a racial standpoint and from an economic one. As creative problem-solvers, we need to be seeking out challenges, and we need to do so within the framework of creating spaces and places that support our natural environments and ecosystems.
