Nobody knows because nobody cares. I see the sticklers here who are offended because someone tries to quantify the responsibilities of the architect. What an insult to the art, give me a break. The art was lost a long time ago in Levittown. the practice of architecture has become so diverse that there is no reall overall definition. Perhaps that is the weekness. It is neither this so it is not anything. All I see is empty decoration at the whim of "designers". There are few original ideas today. Great thinkers maybe but in a field that has no definition, the effort is lost. The role of architect is not what it was. Driven by a marketing agenda. it has lost touch with the real isues of society.
