Reply To: Lets nuke the computer whiz. . .
I agree with your argument and, although I am only a second year architecture student, I can see that the movement of computers into the industry has many detrimental effects. Is this the fault of the person who knows how to use them or is it a misguided intention of those in charge (“movement towards the future”)?
Generally though, because these VIZ guys have spent so much of their own free time sitting down learning the techniques required etc, and often financing purchase of computer, pheripherals and software by themselves, they tend to be very ‘over-protective’ about what they know, and their status within an architectural practice. I mean training alone cost me in the region of â‚¬1500 back in 1998, and I didn’t even go the whole hog with 3DS VIZ etc – I did finance the cost of the training myself though, without any architect’s support.
