  • I have always believed that a humane and progressive architecture is one that creates beauty out of function. Not just for the sake of beauty in itself, but because beautiful buildings and public spaces help people achieve their potential, as citizens as well as individuals. Architects cannot be apolitical we have a duty to engage. Hooman Taghipoor

  • Having returned from Europe to Australia recently I was disgusted with the general apathy here in comparison to what i experienced there. This organisation, and others like it, are essential to create discussion and ultimately form a strong, coherent voice for us to rally with. The need for all of us to engage in an active opposition of fear and war mongering governments such as our own and those of Israel, the US and the UK is of paramount importance.

  • In this strange time every way that promotes peace is a good way to live! We architects can do something too in our daily work
  • I strongly believe in the principles you promulgate and believe we must all speak our hearts. I feel isolated from most of my peers who have adjusted their principles to align themselves with big business or with the government bureaucrats who support it. Once fear, prejudice and greed are overcome, we have the task of building a sustainable environment that offers equal dignity for all. You (we), as a group, have the imagination to visualize peace...

  • I am a member of the Baha\'i community whose primary goal is the development of a world community based on the goals set forth by Baha\'u\'llah, amongst them: The recognition of the oneness of God, The oneness of religion and The oneness of mankind, Abandonment of all forms of prejudice, Harmony of science and religion, Independent investigation of truth, The equality of men and women, Education for all.

  • Wow, what a great concept! I am wondering why this organization is not international. It seems that if any country needs more groups for PEACE, it should be this imperial nation. Anyway, are there others who have asked a similar question? Let me know if anyone else has contacted you with this same idea. I mean, why not a US chapter?
    Arizona would be a tough state to start in (conservatives EVERYWHERE), but Oregon or other states seem like they would have great potential to serve as US headquarters.
    Just thought I would drop you a line to express my enthusiasm at the realization that there are organizations like your out there!
  • Good to see such place to share and to learn something about...
  • well am on my last year architecture in uni willing to continue masters in urban planning since i've always searched for a possible way for a better world through architecture and that would be in dealing with people\'s socio-economic development in a peaceful environment
  • I think what you are doing is fantastic and just what I am interested in - the interface of planning and social justice issues. I am particularly interested in any current research or research needs in this area
  • War not only damages buildings and infrastructure but also people, physically and emotionally. The post war period is the most crucial in re-establishing people\'s lives as well as the villages, towns, cities and countries however in many cases a crucial point is forgotten....access for people with disabilities.
    Although in many cases hospitals and a couple of other civil buildings provide access for people with varying disabilities, it is almost always a forgotten touch to a building or public domain. The result of this is a discriminatory environment not built for all.
    Having visited Bosnia and Serbia over the years (before and after the war) has allowed me to observe the progress of development and in many cases the lack of it, particularly in relation of accessible development. I would imagine that many war torn countries would experience the same and it would be really interesting to compare best practice and try to implement similar strategies in areas where it has failed to achieve an environment that can be enjoyed and accessed by all.
  • I very much agree on no war and peace, and I believe justice would help us live a better life and build a better world. I am only student, not specifically expert or experienced in any of these, but I believe with more power of people, things will be changed and improved. I hope architecture and urban planning would help eliminating conflicts and building stronger communities.
  • great organization, i\'d love to help more events happen in Adelaide
  • It is good to have this forum, for me this gives a bigger picture of what architecture/ urban design should strive for in the disparity of wealth between nations. It would be good to have some kind of exchange program where professionals could voluntarily work in the two contrasty different continent and dealt with completely different human right issues.
  • I am very interested in how we as architects can use our skills to improve the lives of others
  • I believe its imperative for designers to be in touch with different communities and NOT restrict oneself by always competing in the business world.
  • The phoney war - all to real to the innocents of Iraq - is over. The 'liberators' are under attack. It is now time to rebuild for and with the people
  • I just had it with lies and media control over news in the USA. I\'m moving in June to Australia, a country that I feel is mistakenly linking its Iraq involvement with the Bali bombings.

  • I am more than interested. I have marched in the Peace rally in Sydney on Sunday 22nd March ( I have also been involved in the Anti Vietnam War movement).
  • Hopefully Australia will follow suit with Canada and realize that not everything the United States does, the rest of world must do!
  • I am more than happy to be included in your group, especially now when so many are simply throwing up their hands and insisting that nothing can be done now that war's started.
  • I believe it is a great idea to group together as a profession, and voice our belief in peace.
  • At Sunday's rally I was thinking this would be a good idea. Please register me.
  • Could you let me know what you're doing - I'm interested in terms of the Bulletin, but also because I'm on the organising committee for North Shore Against the War - I'd be interested in hearing what sort of support you've got and anything you're planning.
