How to Be an Architecture Critic

In a recent Design Observer essay, architecture journalist Alexandra Lange puts forth the idea that "we need more critics—citizen critics—equipped with the desire and the vocabulary to remake the city. "But we are rarely roused by the day-to-day, brick-by-brick additions that have the most power to change our environment. We know what we already like but not how to describe it, or how to change it, or how to change our minds." [Design Observer]
