In her student years at <a href="http://archinect.com/schools/cover/697/the-cooper-union" target="_blank">Cooper Union</a>, Diller expressed a greater interest in pursuing film than in taking up traditional architectural practice, partly because the profession seemed like too much of a commercial pursuit.

Their reasoning, according to Southern, is that while Howard has long been a fixture at SCI-Arc, he still runs a low-profile, foregoing final reviews in his studio and producing a fair amount of handmade work.
