My response to this review is not to disagree but to suggest that there is a critical difference between architecture engaging in the world and that which delights through escapism. And why is being employable seen as such a problem? It’s binary thinking that wears its paranoia on its sleeve.
Comment on: Zaha Hadid’s Hong Kong tower to open in March
I was there last week. There is a lot to finish by March - and the finishing is anything but slick I am afraid.
Firstly, it is time to change. Secondly no one is saying practical experience is not important. Thirdly it would be good to see professional studies as part of the education of an architect rather than a bolt on...Let's have a stimulating critical debate about this.
