Sometimes I think, as architects, we talk so little about buildings. That’s part of my issue with the profession — and part of why so many people leave it for other things. Architects don’t know how to define themselves. It makes us unnecessarily modest, as if we shouldn’t think of architecture as this big world-changing thing when we talk with other people. If you don’t find your niche, something that’s easy to explain, you feel engulfed in the “architect” stereotype. — Meera Deean, via architects.org
Young designers discuss their professional horizons and architecture’s future.
It's so great to see young architects discussing important issues like these. We need more of this! It's especially great to see this moderated by Archinect blogger Nicole Fichera and starring Lian Chikako Chang, our blogger from the GSD, among others.
Lian has also shared this event on her blog.
