Status quo consistently comes between the architecture profession and change. Here’s another way to think about it.
Arguments against large houses and McMansions are unlikely to succeed using the current rhetoric. We need to consider how change happens.
Change can be gradual or sudden. It is inevitable. So there’s a choice for architectural practice, be forced to change by the context in which you practice or choose to change into the practice you’d like to be.
