New practices

A little bit of inspiring support for young architects trying to redefine their practice (an issue Jeff previously brought up on yowLAB):

Yet this new generation is hard at work, shaping the profession’s future. I think of Alastair Parvin, an energetic Brit who graduated from architecture school just as the bottom fell out of the market. For him and his colleagues, facing unemployment was an opportunity to rethink their life mission. “As a society, we’ve never needed design thinking more,” he pleads. He’s outraged that architects still serve the privileged one percent of society, when the other 99 percent needs them desperately.
