Rarely but this time in contradiction to what other esteemed contributors have understood, I have to say josh has a point ... if one thinks in the way architectural careers are lived and seen.

Even the answer got by his short provocative statement makes one to think so.

In this architects are not alone, but flock together with the bands of the artists. When young some may enjoy success, to later be dismissed by the natural sucession of generations. Then old age comes, and with it the nostalgies of remembrances and the realization of the many accomplishments that in the lives of the survivors stand.

Even if not enjoying early success, the strife for fame may make some look younger in stance than they really are, and for these maybe the extenuation of the effort or just the closer scrutiny brought by the late success unveils the truth of the brilliant mastery concealed in a now worn body during the years that preceded.
