Architectural code of ethics in a post-global era


A pragmatic response to spatial corruption

Architectural code of ethics in a post-global era


A pragmatic response to spatial corruption
A code of ethics for Architects is a practical and urgent tool to achieve a sustainable and adaptable solution to improve our built environment

This is the time we need to stop talking and start acting: a code of ethics is a practical solution engaging the responsibility of the entire architecture practice Spectrum.

Just as the medical doctors have an ethical duty to protect human rights and human dignity since 1948 with the declaration of Geneva when the World Medical Association took the responsibility for setting ethical guidelines for the world's physicians. We should engage in the same optic.

Which interventions are not ethical ? harmful towards the territory or community? Are they wealthy projects located in very limited natural ressources countries? are they products of speculative projects?
This is a useful tool for architects and city planners enabling them to identify harmful commissions from private or public speculators. This will help creating consciousness within the profession as well. Eventually this could bring to the decay of such disastrous projects.


The text would be developed by multi-disciplinary teams then accepted by the EU and eventually by each european country member. After that, every national association of architects would engage each registered and licensed practice to respect the content of this code and set of values.
