Charis Ritchie Link Pillars of Now – Ethics in Architecture

IMAGE: The modern pillars of architecture for designing in the Anthropocene

This project challenged me to rethink the pillars of architecture and to create a response to what the modern pillars of architecture should be in relation to the Anthropocene. Through conducting research into a set group of buildings, I was able to highlight areas in which we can improve on in our architectural practice which led me to the theme of the project: Ethics in Architecture. This graphic displays what I’ve concluded to be the priorities that architects should have when approaching a design. We should be designing for the future, not the present, and consideration of ethical practice and materials is a key way to do this.
