Corruption in Architecture is eating us from within…

Practising architects show interest in Council of Architecture finally. The reason the CoA needs practitioners and not politicians is the way practices are shaping up. With more than 450 schools of Architecture churning out more than 20,000 architects a year, and a limited number of works coming up for design and execution, the competition is going to be cut throat.

And when when the battle gets bloody, all is fair. As the first step, corrupt practices are flourishing, tempting others.

Q: What about corruption?

A: The teachers are not teaching and the professional organisations are wary of bringing up the issue. In MES, in Corporate world, in Institutes, in Government, and in Industries – Wherever there is even a little bit of bureaucracy, the system of ‘cut’ is entrenched, and the percentage is on the rise.

Q: Why can’t architects can’t focus on Design?

A: Those who focus on design lag behind because of or are blocked by these other aspects of ‘practice’
