About Us

Architects Declare is a network of architectural practices committed to addressing the climate and biodiversity emergency.

Originated by architects Steve Tompkins and Michael Pawlyn, and launched on 30 May 2019 by the then 17 UK recipients of the Stirling Prize. it quickly attracted hundreds of other architectural practices from across the UK.

Under the wider banner of ‘Construction Declares’, it has now spread to more than 25 different countries, with over 6,000 signatories, and has been adopted by other built environment disciplines that have signed up to variations on the original 11-point declaration.

Architects Declare is about encouragement, with every signatory organisation expected to self-govern its progress toward achieving the commitments it has made. On the basis that no single architect is currently meeting every part of the radical commitment to change, a firm ‘no public blame and shame’ policy is in place.
