Toss Posh Tosh

Meritocracy is a myth. At every level architecture is carefully calibrated to covertly and overly privilege the middle class. Faced with declining authority we scrabble to blame architecture schools' detachment from practice, a rising consultant class and cultural devaluation of design but are unable to face up to the reality that our pampered posh profession is simply too privileged to engage with the real world. The struggle for a broader base of backgrounds is not just about architecture's cosmetic inclusivity - it is about its survival.

The project has been curated by Phineas Harper, Maria Smith and Robert Mull, and is hosted by The Cass, supported  by The Architecture Foundation and Media Partner Dezeen.
