Sadie Morgan warns architects not to ‘sleepwalk’ into irrelevance


All of this fear mongering about the future of architects seems to be wildly naive. Architects have not made themselves irrelevant, they are victims of an economic model that prioritizes the profits of large developers over design quality. That's all it is. What incentives do they have to hire great designers if they can get engineers to do it cheaply and quickly? Above all else, our modern society prioritizes cost efficiency and shareholder dividends. Good design is a 'nice-to-have' but not necessary bonus.
