Death of the Architect Watch

New, 9 comments

This weekend, Scott Timberg (writing in Salon) bummed everyone out with a story on how badly architects are struggling (so badly that they're comparing themselves to immigrant workers and maids). Eric Owen Moss gets by with that cushy SCI-Arc gig and Barbara Bestor plays to the local crowd, but had to sell her house and take a teaching job to supplement. And the others? "A former architect has become one of the best-loved baristas in Los Angeles; another runs the Coolhaus ice cream truck. Others have lost their homes and their medical insurance?Those who remain in the profession find design work scarce and are teaching, lecturing, entering competitions and moving into Hollywood production design."
