Erskine's definition is wrong? Quite the contrary - from my personal experiences as a consultant on the 'built environment'- the definition is right on. Personally I would take it one step further - that the majority of architects (and landscape architects, traffic engineers, town planners etc.) are terrified of people and are terrified of meeting people.
But even worse - majority of architects (and landscape architects, traffic engineers, town planners etc.) have no understanding of how people function in a city (or a building). That being the case - one would think that architects etc. would hire a third party to evaluate a building (or a town, or a waterfront etc.) after its been up for a year or so - to see if by accident it achieves the outcome(s) expected.
