    I am from Europe and I strongly agree with this article. Avarage people who are not architects find all the buildings awful. We should build houses and creates environment what people like. only historical buildings are liked. I think we should make some consideration about this simply facts. Architectural education clearly kill all of talent and support people with strongly surviving skills only. I was asked avarage people about some buildings which won architectural competition. All of was hated by avarage people. When I asked them why, one of them answered simply: because it should be give pleasent to the eyes. that is all.

    I’m not arguing against professional standards, especially not for a profession charged with making sure buildings don’t fall down. Clearly, there must be ways to demonstrate one’s qualifications in architecture or any other field, and an exam is widely regarded as the most reliable way to do so.

    Yes, quit complaining and pass the test...maybe I want to call myself a lawyer, maybe we should pass a law that says anyone can practice law and call themselves a lawyer without passing the bar...its only fair I'm smart, I care about people...why cant I be a lawyer...
