Dear young architect: don’t ever let your school of architecture interfere with your education, your freedom, your global resposibility and all your endless opportunities within our powerful profession. Enjoy your fabulous architectural tools for building a chair, a house, a city or nothing at all but whatever you do – be absolutely sure to totally unlearn before what was tought you from us: the planet’s population of today, responsible for tremendous social injustice, manmade climate crisis, turbo-capitalism, exagerated convenience, the exploitation of ressources, epic waste production and even war …
Don‘t missuse the superpower of architecture.
Heal the world and make it a better place.
The opportunity‘s on.
