Richard, if you're an architect and a fan of design/architectural history, you will know that architecture design was never something that belonged to the freedom and spirit of the architect.
Much like the Church controlled architectural design after the fall of the Roman Empire, architectural design these days is controlled by all kinds of politicians and departments, not just governmental.
So what are you going to do about it? Sit and complain to anyone who will listen?
Do you know the politics behind the building of Sydney Opera House???
It almost failed but it succeeded as a result of someone having the vision to complete a unique project that would differ from anything else in the world. That's why the Gold Coast, where I now live, is building the tallest residential tower block in the world. No politics involved, just a different vision with a different outlook and a case of how you sell an idea to a willing audience.
You sound frustrated and embittered in your posts. I guess you find yourself hitting a lot of brick walls. That's why I chose interior design instead of architecture. There are no politics in my profession. Total freedom.
