Shadow I agree
Consequently, for your first point, far from being competative and open to all the opposite is true? Emphasis is placed on marketability and the architect who can talk a good game.
Therefor someone like Tony Fretton who is an excellent architect but who could bore for England, in my view, will always lose out to someone who could talk the hind legs off a donkey, like yer man with the leather jacket and black rimmed specs who is trying to build the same building, horizontal and vertical all over the world and now in Dublin
Your second point …….that’s because good modern architecture should stimulate debate and be provocative.
