Abstract

Historically, the architectural profession rose out of the impulse to distinguish the learned master craftsman from ordinary builders, reserving their skills for the exclusive use by the elite, design patrons. Put differently, the profession of architecture exists due to the culture of patronage. However, the definition of patronage and what is considered elite are both challenged in disaster contexts. The scope of recovery expands architectural patrons to include entire communities, and elitism is subject to debate depending on where the power of decision-making lies. We have already seen in the previous two chapters how architects have adapted to an increasingly complex reality of urban disasters.
