I think an architect&rsquo;s skills are completely wasted on making buildings. But I don&rsquo;t see it as weakening the profession, I see it as strengthening. It means that the profession can find traction in other fields: the architect as strategist, as politician, as planner; the architect as curator or editor or writer, as activist or storyteller. Finding ways to operate in other disciplines just gives us much more agency.</p></em><br /><br /><p>This is the direction we're headed and I agree with it. If you want to design and erect buildings, be a Registered Architect. If you get the education of an architect and want to improve the world in all kinds of other non-materiallly-based ways, you're an architect.</p><p>h/t to Javo Cado.</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/131969349/archinect-s-employer-of-the-day-weekly-round-up-78 Archinect's Employer of the Day - Weekly Round-Up #78 Justine Testado 2015-07-16T11:48:00-04:00 >2015-07-16T18:51:33-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/r9/r9bedhgthbyoe9z7.jpg" width="514" height="385" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Heads up to all you job seekers and active employers.
