Architecture needs to be a science first and then an art. By science I don't mean engineering - I mean "scientific reasearch/design". A simple example - if one designs a park bench that's big enough (physically) to sit 3 adults and places that bench at the edge of a town square - thinking that 3 people will sit there - shows a lack of a scientific approach to design (architecture). Research shows that only 2 people will likely sit on that bench at the same time. The question is: "how many schools of architecture even understand this issue?" and consequently "how many architects understand this issue and have the knowledge needed for appropriate design?" - 1% ? 2% ?
