1. They suck because they are not user-friendly. They are not user friendly because the designs do not relate to why and how people use space inside and outside buildings (public open space). Sitting in an office somewhere designing - is redunant - is pure masterbation.

2. The number of lawsuits against doctors and lawyers is phenomenal - as are the damages that are paid out. Yes it is time architects are sued for damaging people's lives - because of mis-designing.

3. Land speculators have destroyed or are in the process of destroying most cities in North America (and elsewhere).And we should be thanking them? It's like thanking Hitler.
