Looks like at least some people care about what I do.
was that supposed to be a link to an article, or just the site?
Just the site...I wander over there every once in a while, always vowing never to revisit. The e-gos are out of control, kind of funny really.
It is very entertaining, especially coming from that world. i think LAs could learn something from them though. We need a bit mor4 agressive attitude and unabashed egotistical bantering. It would be good for the profession. We are too nice.
BTW. Went to the the AIA national convention this week. Never before have so many bowties, sportcoats and ratty jeans, and weird-ass glasses have been assembled in one spot outside of Germany.
I like architects and their nerdiness, though they can be condescending at times, but it comes from their passion in design. I hate it when LA's look down on people like them like we are somehow better.
LA's looking down on architects? Where do you work? Just kidding...
Try this experiment when youre bored: Go to archinect, register a user name, and post something (anything) landscape related and see what kind of responses you get. The best is if you tell them you do planning. ;)
If you really want to troll, start talking about how modernism was a farce, and that all works of 60's and 70's brutalism should be summarily demolished.
I wouldn't have to pretend to believe that.
