You ask/state two things here. Your post is entitled "Is Architecture just for rich people?". You then say that "only people with high income can afford an architect"

Someone designs every 'building' so the answer to your first question must be no - everyone experiences, uses and lives in architecture.

The answer to your second question isnt so important once you consider the answer to the first.

Just because someone cant afford an architect doesnt mean that architecture is only for rich people.

There is of course the whole arguement that architects work for more than just "people". They also work for governments, councils, the UN etc etc to provide designs for people who cant afford houses.
