Award-winning architect Sarah Wigglesworth argues for a model in which people have a greater control of the built environment around them, with architects as enablers, collaborators and advisors.
Architect Sarah Wigglesworth explores the cultural challenges that architecture can and should be addressing and where we have erected barriers to doing so. Sarah argues that architects are relatively powerless within the broader forces that shape our cities, arguing for an architecture in which people will have greater control of the built environment around them. In this scenario, those that currently control development, including architects themselves, take on a new role as enablers, collaborators and advisors.
