Excellent point M.K. The absence of a strong link between architecture and geography may also be explained by a neglect on behalf of the latter discipline. It appears that geography, with its principal concerns in space and place, would be concerned with architecture. This however, is not the case.Many geography students progress to the planning profession, without engaging in any architectural study whatsoever. i think that the point you make is very valid, that Geography, and its focus on urban planning/design, rural development, transport, national/regional planning, environment, sustainability, climate, geology,etc. etc. should have a lot to offer to students of architecture.(and vice-versa). I myself study geography at post- graduate level, and hope to become a planner, and am very aware of the academic 'gap', which is a neglect of architectural concerns. I am attepting to overcome this, by using this website, for example, and books/journals, newspapers....but this is not enough obviously. The two disciplines have so much to offer each other, its just a pity.
