“A group of architects holding a sign that read “ARCHITECTS AGAINST FOSSIL FUELS” took to the streets last Sunday in Manhattan in one of many happenings that kicked off Climate Week NYC: an event that brings together thousands of protesters; leaders in business, government, the climate sector; and the United Nations to convalesce about planet earth’s future. The design professionals that marched down Broadway were members of The Architecture Lobby (TAL) Green New Deal working group who were invited to demonstrate by Labor Network for Sustainability. TAL was there to do what their banner suggested: challenge architecture’s complicity with the fossil fuel industry and advocate for a just transition to a more equitable, green economy.”
