About this product
- DescriptionMany believe that the moral mission of architecture has been in serious decline for the last 25 years. In this work, Tom Spector points out the dilemmas of architectural practice and offers a theoretical and practical basis for an examination and transformation of the quandaries the profession faces. What makes a good building or a good architect? Are there limits to an architect's ethical or legal responsibilities in a building process where architecture plays an increasingly smaller role? Is preservation a moral imperative? What happens when building codes and ethical responsibilities are in conflict? This text investigates the moral underpinnings and implications of leading architectural theories, subjecting them to the analytical technioques of moral philosophy. The conclusions provide a road map to help architects make the right decision in the difficult tradeoffs that confront designers on a daily basis.
