The Ethical Context

An interesting definition of ethics is the “art of cooperation”.  What I call an ethical context in architecture is a description of the way a particular culture solves their cooperative problems.  That culture may be corporate, regional or national.  Characterizing the ethical context has specific design considerations, such as:

  • Regulatory consideration
  • Security design (who has access to what, etc.)
  • Customer relations (what does the customer see, how they are invited to participate, etc.)
  • Consumption of “commons” (such as power and water)
