Unfortunately, architects here are still trained to focus on buildings as isolated objects, without spatial, social, political or cultural context.

Not sure about the social/political, but I’d agree with the accusation re spatial. It’s the modernist myth.

Why does the list of possibles only include private sector architects? A point from the article not included in the quote above is that working for DCC is very different from working in private practice- stepping away from the drawing board to get involved in the other aspects of the job. In general, public and private practice seem to be very different beasts all told.
