In a risk-averse society degrees provide a relatively transparent baseline measure of competence, a theoretical equivalence of ability of those with degrees and a universally agreed range of constituent subject areas. Architectural degrees, since about 1945, have been linked directly to the educational requirements set by the professional institutes which tend to hover round issues of professionalism, liability, consumer protection and protection of the profession...oh! and they're also about good architecture.

With or without a degree FLW would always have been an architectural genius. The rest of us are not so talented and need the bolstering effect that a degree brings. A necessary evil in architecture: get one and enjoy its benefits.
