But the fact is that architect profs - therefore architects, simply don't understand people. How people function psychologically, sociologically, perceptually when it comes to the built environment.

That is why most cities, most buildings, most public open spaces done in the past 100 years or so - suck -- suck badly.Architects are simply lazy and refuse to do the necessary research. Architects (and planners) should be forced to return their fees for making buildings,cities, and public open space so USER-UNFRIENDLY! BUt very friendly for stupid and greedy and power hungry land speculators.
