If anything I have noticed the continued focus on design now aided by technology, which probably speaks volumes on our collective state of denial of what being an architect means. Instead of allowing different types of architects to learn/flourish in school (some focused on technical or management or marketing, etc.) we only seem to promote the 3d render paper designer which creates things that are invariably impossible to build or a horrible space to be in. I don’t mean to sound old or jaded, but it’s the truth. At this moment in time, we have pushed architecture forms forward by relying on technology but we have yet to use it to create better spaces, the contemporary architecture that gets the attention/awards/press seems to be more about the form/shape that we can build and less about the function.
On the state of architecture education.
