Video: Cameron Sinclair - The refugees of boom-and-bust

Cameron Sinclair is an inspiring individual and I agree with his statement that in many of the issues he takes on, there is no High Road, but only one road to take. Social and environmental sustainability and responsibility is a moral imperative, one architects are bound to serve. Make the right choices.

At TEDGlobal U, Cameron Sinclair shows the unreported cost of real estate megaprojects gone bust: thousands of migrant construction laborers left stranded and penniless. To his fellow architects, he says there is only one ethical response.
