Architects are involved in a lot of things like activism, conferences, writing, academics, but at the core of our profession, we make buildings and create spaces. Architecture is criticized for its worst excesses but not always praised for its subtle successes.
We are in the age of fast food, get-rich-quick schemes and numerous other forms of instant gratification. It is no wonder that the most popular Architectural platforms are serving the same: Quick shots of overly aestheticized imagery of new Architecture instead of critical reflection of a building’s effects on its neighborhood and its inhabitants.
Architecture is a peculiar discipline. It is at once practical, philosophical, artistic and political. Good Architecture simply does not manifest without serious consideration, and simplification and watered-down discourse is an urgent challenge to deal with. RTF is here to encourage systems-thinking approach in Architectural discourse and connect Architecture back to its social and political roots.
