All good and well, but Angela spoke a few months ago about how upbeat Irish architects were about the downturn

from the bdonline post by an architect?

It is important that young would-be architects have the opportunity to escape the profession while they are still young enough to restart in a decent career. Many of these young people are intelligent, hardworking and competent, and deserve a reasonably secure and hopeful future.

onq do you support architects as the people or movement or the idea that an architects design is always superior?
do you serve your clients more than you serve architects?
Who comes first your client or your design ideals?


Onq can you show me how the pay structure for architects factors in the cycles of recessions?

Nonsense - no one is trapped in a profession - they can walk away and re-train at any time.

(heads off to bdonline to see what this is all about)

I take each on their merits.
do you serve your clients more than you serve architects?

There is no "serve architects" - is this a ten year old writing these questions?
Who comes first your client or your design ideals?


Same question?

Okay - there is no "first".
For me design is a battle between -
  • what I want
  • what the client wants
  • what the planners want
  • what the statutory approvals require
  • what the building regulations require
  • what the building itself seems to want

No I can't - I answered this before didn't I - why do you ask?
More importantly, why do you keep asking me?

I'm not a pundit on the economy or a representative of the Competent Authority here, the RIAI.

The RIAI's response is to offer architects on the unemployment the "opportunity" to gain experience working for free in architects offices.

Indentured servitude.

ONQ.
