Abstract

Starting with a film presentation entitled 'Telling It As It Is', Jonathan Charley examines architecture as a capitalist process in a world of commodity production, questioning whether the profession can ever have true creative autonomy free from the influence of politics and economics. He looks at attempts at creative autonomy through cooperative working and direct action. There is a call for a united voice, organising architects as a unified body. Specially commissioned by the R.I.B.A. Dr Charley was asked to provide a critique of the state of the architectural profession from a Marxist perspective. Transcript to come.
