This has been true for a while, and has necessitated the formation of groups like the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art which architects go to in an effort to help learn skills they didn't learn in school. So, the question is, what will we do to change this?

Architecture is suffering a crisis of confidence. More and more mainstream figures in the field are admitting that the profession has lost its way. As I previously mentioned, Frank Gehry, the world’s most famous architect, recently said that “98% of everything that is built and designed today is pure sh*t. There’s [...]

Good for Traci L. Slatton for calling out the New York Times on their shoddy coverage of the Gehry Ike Memorial.
