MASS Lecture: Towards an End of Architecture by Charlie Edmonds

In the 2023-2024 academic year, the student group MASS, based at London Metropolitan University, held a series of talks around the theme ‘Anti-Apathetic Architecture’.

The students asked the question “What if the architect was to move away from a position of apathy and instead diverge to practice fundamentally rooted in care; for the human, non-human and prosperity of our planet. What would an anti-apathetic architecture be like?”

In this episode, Charlie Edmonds the co-founder of Future Architects Front (FAF) and member of Civic Square, talks about the ‘End of Architecture’. He covers themes from the architect as a worker, unionising, the climate crisis, architectures relationship to capitalism and the work he has undertaken with FAF.

For over 30 years, the Architecture Foundation has brought together professionals from across the built environment to discuss and act on issues related to design and the built environment. With a renewed focus on the city and the critical intersection of architecture and politics, the Architecture Foundation works to effect meaningful change on policy and practice.
