Confessions of an Architect

well, I guess you can consider that like some kind of proltarian form of feminine accessories. Bourgeoises are more my taste I'm afraid, I'm sorry to realize that...

Hi

My senior associate donated his entire library to the firm. I was assigned the task of preliminary sorting before the librarian gets to cataloging it. I find, and this is NOT a joke, a copy of playboy. So my confession and DUTY as an Anarch-inect: Head to the mag shop for more skin mags to plant in the books for the librarian to 'find'. Small price to pay for a life time of laughs.

...SO TRUE! like, why do 'architects' lack style and personality?
i mean, everyone is soooo boring? granted, this is not all offices, but sometimes i think i'm the only one who dresses with flair, designs with a flair, interacts with flair...i'm the non-stiff here!
i'm just glad that there are more of you out there...
maybe i need a new sceen? a fresh change....hmmmm...

1. I don't care for menthol cigarettes.
2. Because they are rich and smart and read books, my clients know more cool architect stuff than me.
3. I don't have any idea what other people are thinking about.

For Studio 201 we are learning details this year and our subject matter has been a brick house. The final drawing is est. at 100-120 hours for the plan wich includes the brick floor along with all the mortar joints at 1/2" scale hand drafted. After spending aprox 80 hours i couldn't do it anymore and missed the first deadline of friday midnight. My neck is still in so much pain from leaning down and looking at all the little lines I still couldn't finish it today by 2pm for the second deadline. And now I have other finals to study for like Structures, The Dwelling, and intro to AutoCAD. I'm not sure if I should feel like I've been broken or if it is just my body revolting against the work load. I feel weak and disheartened.

I rent a apt in Manhattan.
I own a condo in Brentwood.
I co-own a beach club in Marbaya.
I have sex everyday.

But, I'm not licenced.
The horror makes me pale.

i know what i have to do in the profession to make money - but i wont do it, i can't do it, I fear losing my soul and my place in heaven (the trendy soho section where corb, bachleard (both), and picasso live).

Hi
Sorry but there are some problems reading the site ; I alway's liked the flash like speed and the graphic aproach of many architecture and design sites ,those where making a site is more than just plain HTML.
Still I also every time I visit one of these sites blame the designer that the print is so small that you get a bit confused when parts of the screen suddenly change and within an even smaller text you must find the links that acturly respond. -------- I don't know if you se my point, but I realy fancy smart pages and the way web tools can be used it look better and the speed is good but to often it is a try and check ,it is often difficult to navigate and if you are looking for somthing particular it can be frustrating to wander thru exotic new gimmicks ( even some of them can be quite exiting ) .
Get my point -------- fact is that people older than 40 simply need glasses and if the text and background plus a flashing picture is what you se when you are looking for a menu, you are left with a sense that it is bad that the designer don't think just a bit about that somone without knowing anything, must find a way find some pictures ,but often the graphics are hidden among links you don't intend to read.

graspin - business school will be worse. I'm from a family of bankers and MBAs - I chose architecture because everyone looked so unhappy trudging to work then coming home tired. With architecture you sometimes don't come home - so I think its a little better...i think.

graspin,
what you (immediately) need is a woman who is a sex bomb, a better job or your own job, and in the mean time take some darvocet..
quit being bitter. it is not cool or attractive after a while, nor productive. a healthy dose of angst is okay. do like i say :) because i am older than you and went thru quitting architecture for several years. when i came back , i was not bitter but more thoughtful and calmer. and more comfortable with myself. if you don't have the money to quit, like i didn't, it is still possible if you take construction jobs and do physical labor. upper crust babes will love the roark and you will be happy and content. if you still love architecture you will come back and do good work for yourself and others.
otherwise, go fuck yourself being a futures broker asking people to buy into heating oil before the winter hits. :)<

abracadabra:
i agree...and to tell ya the truth, i'm not that bitter. i only use this forum as a tool for venting.
that said, my friends would mock me if they found out i was this sad about life. i put on a brave face most of the time, with a smile to mask all of my hurt. but i find this place a good way to receive free therapy...lol.
i wish i had my lady back...i wish i had a better job...but when i wake up, i realize that my life isn't that bad, and every day it gets better. but thanks.
ps...a few 'sex bombs' hit on me large friday night...but my mind is with the 'lady friend'. thats love.

i told a girl this weekend (at a bar in toronto) that i had the winning design for the new world trade towers in New York, but lost the commision due to political pressure/governmental influence that they wanted 'an american' to be the lead...lol.

this chick ate it up!

so my confession is this: i use architecture to get laid!
