Towards A New Practice: Provocations on the future of professional architecture by Ryan Panos
The profession of architecture is in jeopardy; rethinking how architects engage in the processes of realizing building is essential to the future of practice. If architects are to remain a part of architecture, then they need to take on more accountability and risk. Seizing responsibility enables architects to regain control of processes which shape our environments.
Towards a new Practice is an architectural graphic novel critiquing The Canadian Handbook of Practice and its relation to responsibility. These documents and others like it represent a managerial hierarchical system of practice, protecting young designers from the potential pitfalls of practice. But by doing so, it has made itself a shield that we hide behind.
