"A risk of not pleasing people".?? Let me explain. This has nothing to do with pleasing people - it has everything to do with good design. An architect needs to love people or he or she simple is not an architect-can't be an architect. That's what Erskine is saying.
Why? Because the architect is designing for people - how can anyone design for people while hating them - its impossible.
I asked my father who was a master builder for 78 years (yes he built for 78 years) - what the difference was between a good carpenter and a bad carpenter. He replied: "a good carpenter fixes his (or hers) mistakes - a bad carpenter doesn't exist - they are wood butchers.
In that case, if you love people - you can be an architect. If not - then a city butcher.
