Does Architecture Have Politics?
Many architects have a neutral stance toward political opinions, and shy away from politicizing the discipline. Others have called for a greater commitment of architecture and planning to tackle unjust inherent features of the built environment, from decolonizing cities and academic canons to questioning building norms and materials. Yet the current and evolving political context demands more than silence from a discipline that has repetitively failed to address its systemic sexism and racism, and remains ruled by homogeneous white, male, educated demographics.

This panel seeks to discuss and inspect the various positions and ways that practitioners choose to engage with the urgencies that surround and permeate architecture, as well as point at new agendas for architecture.
