"or the sad little people who redesign toasters "
Its this kind of elitism that has fostered the delusion that the architect is still relevant. Here is what you are faced with...
condescending people who think they are above the toaster designer or lawyer. At least they are paid handsomely, you fool.
Ben here is the future that this guy speaks of...
Did you know that 90% of housing in America is done without architects. I wonder what the percentage of people practicing law, medicine, or dentistry without a licence is. Probably 0.00% Somehow the architect has managed to squander his industry because of pretentious people like these. Please say something relevent about the industry and stop misleading students. What is this... "always remember that everything is designed for the future. It is what the built environment will become - personally, I would say that that was kind of interesting, wouldn't you ?" What about now? What about the reality of the industy?
The only architect that the American public even remotely recognises is Frank Ghery. What are his contributions to the industry? Should we all live in crumbled up pieces of paper?
As architects, we've squandered our chances, the only thing I want to hear is how we get it back, Save the pretentious judgements for your black turtleneck parties, me and my little feet will be in the studio working.
