Sometimes it appears that the only job an architect has is to bullshiat just enough to fool someone into believeing architects actually do anything meaningful, and that they are somehow better than everyone else.

Seriously.

I used to spend signfiicant amounts of time in a archiecture college, and their study program consisted about 30% of collaging bullshiat models and 70% bullshiatting everyone else about how great their little model was supposed to be.

Smeggy Smurf: Tenatra: I would expect them to produce something better than that if those really are architecture students...

You clearly have never interacted with architecture students before. All they're good for is making empty gestures and drawing pretty pictures. They don't actually learn anything about design until they've done a couple of years in the real world as Architects in Training as they put in their 2-3 years. Those years are required before they're allowed to even think about taking the extremely difficult series of tests to become licensed.

I've been in the field since 1999. These kids would never get a chance if I made the hiring decisions. We work with BIM and real world problems. The buildings I'm working on these days are simple compared to the past but when you're talking 7-12 million dollars for a simple box, you want somebody who's not making toys. You want a serious architect. These, they're little more than boys playing with tinker toys. That's all they'll ever be. Pissant little kids with no future because they're not taking the job seriously.

One serious fark up and we can kill hundreds of people, cost tens of millions in legal fees, damages, etc. Even a simple screw up, a minor mistake in communication can cost weeks of delays, countless hours wasted of having an expensive crane on site, weeks of lead time getting new off-site manufactured goods, etc.

Heck even a simple thing as missing a single number in a spec for the toilet partition can throw tight schedules off and cause much wailing and gnashing of teeth. Everybody makes that mistake at some point. The difference between that and one of these ass clowns is we're skilled enough to fix the mistake. These clowns are still playing with kid toys. Tinker toys. Not lives. Not paychecks. Not major projects.

Fark them and their idiototic professors.


Tell us how you really feel Smeggy.

I do have a couple good friends in school for it right now, they also work entry level drafting jobs. I know that they aren't making any calls in design aspects, but c'mon look at that thing they built! Look at the illustration they were trying to capture in their own design and tell me they couldn't have used a bit of critical thinking to capture the atmosphere of it better, the design aspect was already done for them (although it doesn't say who came up with it).

You realize that's 21 degrees Celsius, right? Multiply by 1.8, add 32 and bam! 69.8 Fahrenheit. Damn cozy to me.

They realize that their future as architects isn't very bright, so they pull off this stunt in the hopes of being different and edgy. Unfortunately for them, now everyone knows their future is not very bright because they build sheet forts outside in the middle of November, in farking Canada. At least kids have the common sense to do it inside.
