This subject has come up many times in my day-to-day life as well as countless online discussions. Where did it go? Why do people interpret our quest for integrity in our work with arrogance? None of us went to school to become anything but well-respected great architects who would design environments that would impact our current culture and hopefully last for centuries. We didn’t set on this journey to be brought in at the last-minute to stamp mediocre work created by others. It’s time to get back to having integrity in architecture, development, real estate, and the ongoing development of our cities, towns, neighborhoods, streets and yes even our own houses. It’s time to stop giving in to the bottom dollar and think about where we are going.
What do you think? Are you on board?
