So to confirm my opinion.. . .

those of us who solve a clients set of problems, with 'tasteful' and 'stylish' aesthetics, within the givin restraints/limitations/budgets etc etc... are NOT practicing architecture, but purely providing stylish 'modern' things....embellishments of our egotistical asperations. Large giant penis es which are offered to the world.

the lack of any underlying exploration results in products which rely solely on the present, and do not provide any sustainance for the future., they can never be timeless.

'statements' made by this 'designer' become purely egotistical appendicies!

Not to even mention the lack of contextual consideration beyond facadism, the lack of development of ones place, and its collective identity etc etc...

any other thoughts??
