Apologies I have been out of touch. Reality has caught up with me as I now understand the nature of practicing architecture vs that which I have develped in academia.
Reading this article reminded that there are some arguments that architects have among themselves that are answering the wrong questions or are addressing irrelevant issues at this stage of the professional changes. It would either be a desire to align the academic pursuits with professional interests, or enthral the profession with the promise that technology will streamline and eliminate most of the current issues which the built environment have.
I will be attempting to write something in the coming weeks, that address my experience of practice, architectural influence to society and the built environment, and also how the profession could be in harmony with academia.
