Guess what you point to, is the fact that if anyone "want to build houses" , then they shuld not become architects but building constructores. ---- True as today main part of buildings don't requier an architect , acturly not even an engineer but only a specialised CAD appication doing Lego.
Still you will ot make architect bark about this fact, you will not evem make them mumble about fake facade of halve inch fake brickwork tapestry fake that cover clumpsy boxworks in concrete walls filled with emty bottles , acturly architects rather do a fancy music hall than a decent factory building -------- and even worse ; that when a contest _ask_ for visions about flexibility in building systems, that can make a building possible adabt the evolution within either the arts or as boring things as storing of cultural remains, _no_ architect seem capable to even point in a direction other than Lego vise.
So it is quite natural that those who build buildings are not architects. So the ingeneers they are the ones who _can , they are those who _do, and while art are a social game ,they are also those who _add the visions_, --- architects these day's seem to just copy what the engineers progress.
