In this presentation, Jenny Donovan explores how architects can best help communities recover from disasters, how it is different to normal circumstances and the personal qualities required to truly make a difference.
This session is part of the Institute’s response to the unprecedented bush fires of 2019/2020. It is also applicable to other situations, disasters or extreme events causing trauma.
Ethics and ethical practices interact with everything the architect does—from the seemingly trivial through to the seriously life threatening.
Moral rights are also incredibly important for the architect—in terms of respecting the work of others as well as protecting your own work, and for providing a meaningful and valuable built environment legacy for future generations.
