Panel Discussion: Ethics and the Business of Architecture

As competition in the UK becomes tighter, architects are keen to find work overseas, often in such places where the prevailing human rights record has been a growing cause of concern and debate for some time.

Is the question of ethics in architecture a matter where business must be led by pragmatics of the head, rather than emotions of the heart? Or is compromise a defeat?

Are students of architecture being taught about ethics or is it assumed that each individual will do as they see fit when they start to practice?

A panel discussion led by Sumita Sinha, Professor Nabeel Hamdi and Anthony Powis from AsF discuss this thorny problem, followed by Q&A.
