The time for manifestos is past. For 200 years people have been using them as an excuse to fuck the planet up for money. Lutherâ€™s Wittenburg address can be seen as the original moment when individualism and the worship of money â€“ or its euphemism, â€śprogressâ€ť, disrupted the relationships between people and their places, and tradition and continuity. From then on weâ€™ve had a long line of anally retentive technocrats boasting about the future, their materialist utopias, the triumph of science and the necessary in built obsolescence of design. Design is dead â€“ long live architecture!
