Phil,

Very provacative list. Have you considered developing messages/counterpoints to those in the construction industry who diminish the architect's contribution? Architects have ceded a tremendous amount of turf to contractors, interior designers and construction managers. Why not make the case that architects can do more than design? They have more training and more credentials than any of the above.

Phil Bernstein

Thanks, Barbara. That is exactly the sort of thing we hope to explore as the semester, not necessarily as "counterpoints" so much as assertions about where architects can lend real value from their unique vantage point. The "turf pie" is certainly expanding, and with it lots of opportunities for everyone.
