politics and architecture

Real quick, from BD Online: the line is drawn in the sand when it comes to architecture's political role. Paul Hyett insists that architects must imbue their work with a political awareness and responsibility. Robert Adam says that architecture must shy away from any political engagement. On which side would you guess my sympathies lie?
