if people want to redesign toasters or become lawyers, fine - it is their choice.

the question was about how involving and rewarding architecture could be.

yes, I would say that for most of the profession there is more interest in the work than there is for lawyers.

as for designing for tomorrow, the point I was making was fairly straightforward - what is designed today will be built and used in the future.

I am not an architect - and I have only two types of clients: architects and ad agents. Nobody pushes ad agents around, they are creative, positive and commercially aware.

try learning from people like them and the clients might take you more seriously.

"Save the pretentious judgements for your black turtleneck parties, me and my little feet will be in the studio working. "

I don't go to "turtleneck parties" these days - I tell architects about a range of work that they can apply for that is greater than anything that you have ever dreamt of. Its purpose is to open up opportunities for architects. Maybe you don't think that that is any help to your profession, but it is hardly elitist.
