To make any positive change in this cycle is difficult but essential.

- Indigenous Australians - linking housing and health 1985-2007

I just noticed that Paul Pholeros has just been profiled in "Doer Profiles" on the American Institute of Architects' website.

"One of the greatest obstacles has been the myth-making by lazy professionals, builders, and government officials. The greatest myth has been that indigenous people damage or vandalize houses and that is the reason for the poor quality of housing. This lets everyone off the hook."
