Architects are never taught the right thing

January 14, 2016

Aravena has nailed it, and many have been feeling and saying the same thing: “Architects are never taught the right thing”

See his interview with Dezeen @

Further debate and discussion can come soon, now that you have found fame and more visibility, Aravena. Thank you for voicing this concern.

The confusion is apparent in new generation, only I feel that it relates to the entire education system, not just to architectural education. The disconnect is there, and I can see students desperately trying to figure things out, to know what is right for them, and for their times.

About a new generation of ‘Socially minded Architects’, I disagree, having recently met the older generation of socially minded architects, some of them even working in development sector against all temptations and with real passion.

More later.
