It’s something I heard in class today. Yes, I am enjoying my night classes immensely. Now, let me get back to this: How law should not belittle your right to your profession.
Let me just say it: I am a Filipino Architect and I’m not happy about this. The politics/ economics/ biases and the like that went into this decision, I cannot answer for. All I know is we still need engineers to build structures and it’s well known that there are a lot of them. However, those who do not understand what an architect does wouldn’t even know what they’re missing. Same goes with Interior Designers and Architects.
An engineer can make a building stand but they are not architects. No law can ever take away the integrity of our profession. Buildings come and go, doesn’t matter how many projects we hold. Our lasting effect on the people, community, art and our profession: that’s what matters.
Professionals: what have we become?
