All very idealistic of our student friend, but it does assume the point that architects are blame free. And we know that’s not true, architects still have to feed their employees and their families so they take the work where they can. Ultimately it is up to the architecture community to try and raise development design quality.
As for the apartments, look again at the next new block you see, see the blue RIAI sign? That means it was designed by an architect!!!
What we can all do is encourage discussion here, it’s all about increasing awareness not just complaining. Architects and developers need to know that they are accountable to the public whether that be through negative reaction in discussion or more direct approaches such as protests.
And when I say negative reaction, I do mean negative but constructive criticism rather than just negative.
