WELL NOW THAT YOU MENTION IT YES, I WILL JUMP IN. Almost all famous (especially american) architects came from a wealthy backround. That is how they did it. They didnt have to work through college. They didnt have to take the first shitty job after college to begin paying back student loans. Is Nick Cage a great actor? or did it help that his uncle was Francis Ford Coppula. Is George Bush the most qualified man to lead the U.S.? Doubtful. But we are lead by the boys with the silver spoons in there mouths. It is the same in architecture, except sometimes I think that the spoon is in their posteriors as opposed to the mouth. So the rest of us architects are stuck at the low end of the professional pay scale. If you pulled someones tooth out with out a license you'd go to jail, if you built a house without an architect nobody cares. This is because the elitist architectural world has turned a cold shoulder on the robbery that has occurred right before there eyes. Developers have taken over, left the architects out of the equation, and nobody knows any better. It is tough being a whore in a pimps world.
