R If it is "Human who has created the ideal of self ethics in Gods dignity" (Kant) and "God of western metaphysics is dead" (Nietzsche), Can we also emphasize ethics?
R If "Religion – as the collection of ethics regulations- have the rule of controller to people masses" (Marx), between architects and urban planners –who possess the higher recognition levels in comparison with the people masses - Can we discuss about ethics?
R How can be an Individualist, and think about ethics which is a pluralist conception?
R Is professional ethics in the time that architecture and urbanism were ordered and human had fear of God, in comparison with the professional ethics in the time that architecture and urbanism have been organized with "Turbulence" and "Chaos Theory" a permanent conception?
R Is ethics a comparative category which in different cultures there exist different attitudes about it? Is also Ornament, a crime"? (With respect to Adolf Loos)
R If the designers be honest, can they impose their ideas to employers?
R Can we mislead the employers for the progression of plans?
R Is misleading an ethical act?
R Where is the boundary of breaking patterns of professional ethics in architecture and urbanism?
R Where is the boundary of loyalty to the patterns of professional ethics in architecture and urbanism?
