Architecture should be a process whereby the design of the space within a building and the design of the space surrounding the outside of the building relates scientifically to how/why people use public and private space.

Unfortunately profs at schools of architecture in North America (and most other countries as well) don't understand (have knowledge about the science of "how/ why people use private and public space". Nor do they have any knowledge of semiotics. Nor do they likely love people. Nor do they know how to talk to people.

Naturally students leaving these schools behave in a "monkey see - monkey do" fashion. And as as incapable as the arch. profs in roviding functional architecure.

The same applies to landscape architecture schohols and urban planning schools.
