Abstract

In the film Citizen Architect, Cameron Sinclair states that “the reality check is that the world is not gonna look like Dubai, it’s gonna look like Lagos, Nigeria,” thus beginning a discussion of how the growing social, economic, and environmental ineq- uities of the contemporary world are exacerbated by the inward-looking focus of much architectural education and practice.1 My stance is that educa- tors and practitioners need to engage this world and learn from it, bringing us and our students into direct contact with systems that are flexible, im- provisational, and materially creative.
