Israeli architects must stop designing illegal settlements

Resolution from ARC.PEACE   International Architects Designers Planners for Social Responsibility

ARC●PEACE has noted with dismay that Israeli architects engage in the design of illegal Jewish sett­lements on expropriated Palestinian land in the Occupied Territories. These activities are in clear vio­lation of the code of ethics of the International Union of Architects (UIA), which says that “there shall be no attempt to impose solutions of one society on other societies” (article 1:2) and that professionals shall fashion an environment “expressive of the genius of the people and reflective of the substance of their culture” (article 3).  

ARC●PEACE demands that the Israeli association of architects shall expel members who grievously violate professional ethical standards by engaging in the design of illegal settlements. It is not accept­able for architects to participate in the violation of internationally recognized human rights. Read full statement here.
