Almacantar’s Mike Hussey claims architects ‘in danger of being wiped out’


The same client complaint- the architect cannot deliver his designs at the construction cost he said he could. The old canard that good design pays, is simply that 'good' design is what the Developer's Equation leaves on the table for the architect to use after all other variable are accounted for- 'good' (cheap) external cladding or finish systems, 'good' (cheap) variable volume airconditioning, 'good' (cheap) efficiency ratios squeezing public spaces and creating dark office space... Developer's Equation- huh? What's that?
