I will say yes. Architecs have the obligation to respond to the problems that lay within the human being, at first we were in charge of providing protection against weather conditions, now our responsability goes beyond that. Not only do we provide protection but we also construct the spirit and vision of the persons. We are no longer only a respond of what's goes on in society, but now we also determine to were society is heading. By the way, excuse my spelling if I make a mistake, but my writing in english is not that good.I know it may sound like a responsability that goes beyong our field, but remember that we create the world in which humans develop society(could this means that the actual world conditions had happened because of the way we have consive our soroundings? That will be another issue to disscusion). With globalization architecture becomes a global experience ( like everything else in that matter) making the architec to be force to break the walls that are dividing our society ( I will leave that word in singular)and work with the forces that are handle on the diferent conflicts, giving directions to this forces so they can come together and flow. My comment maybe a little disperse but I think you guys know what I mean.
