Previously in the beginning of the anthropocene, an architect’s role was mainly aesthetic, distant and abstract. In our current time of crisis, architects cannot afford to sit on the sidelines any longer. We cannot afford to consort with fascists, billionaires and corporations. We cannot collaborate with greenwashing. Now is the time of the Activist-Architect. Take a stand, or be complicit in the destruction of Earth.
This booklet offers insight into the different ways an architect can be an activist for different issues. It provides inspiration for what architecture can look like, not only in the future, but now.
