sorry I made some typos. Here's a correction:

I often try to look at a building over time, wondering why I think it is so bad; but obviously, others with more power (or sense?) than I, seem to think it is so good.

It has always been a tough world, for architects and others. There was no AIA in the classical world. You seem to say that the bad appearance of buildings is the reason that today architects have to earn the trust of the society.

Stephen,

Sounds like you have some high ideals. I don't mean to be critical of that. With those you should go far.

Peter
