Tom Fisher & ethics in architecture

  • 1.  Tom Fisher & ethics in architecture

    "I don't think the architecture profession has yet had its 'come to Jesus' moment on climate change and how to respond ethically."

    This is from Tom Fisher, in a conversation with Michael Crostbie about Fisher's new book, The Architecture of Ethics. I can't imagine a more important topic right now for thinking humans in in the AEC industry. Unsurprisingly, we find this in Common Edge, which is a both a treasure and a relief in our media landscape.
