Reason 101: Architects utilize a palette of possibility. Architects are worried not with the required but with the contingent – not with how things are but with how they might be. Reason 102: The task architects perform details so many parts of life – and of learning. It has so many facets, it will keep a person interested for a lifetime.
As Richard Rogers said: I believe very strongly and have fought since many years ago – at least over 30 years back – to get structures not simply within schools, but architecture discussed under history, geography, research, technology, art. Attorneys leave law due to burn-out and an insufficient meaning in their work. Architects might leave the field for financial reasons, but few if any did so for lack of what was found there. Reason 103: Architects strive to cure the world. Architects still believe that their works and deeds can help to recover the places where they may be privileged to work. Despite what Thom Mayne has said: I’m often called an old-fashioned modernist.
But the modernists experienced the absurd proven fact that architecture could recover the world. That’s impossible. Today nobody expects architects to have these grand visions anymore And. Nobody expects this – except us architects, ourselves. Reason 104: Architects hake the hard decisions. When a sales rep calls and asks for a decision-maker they hand the phone for an architect.
