Weekly Poll (17)


A recent blog on the role of architects states, "As a professional providing a service, an architect's first duty is to his or her client, with a supplementary duty to the public for safety and welfare." Do you agree?

Architect Rem Koolhaas recently told attendees at the American Institute of Architects’ 2016 conference that the architectural community needs an overhaul in terms of communication. “Architecture has a serious problem today in that people who are not alike don’t communicate,” he said, noting that differing opinions help deliver stronger design. Do you agree or disagree?

A California architect who improperly built a home with outdoor fireplaces installed inside has been sentenced to a year in prison for involuntary manslaughter after a house fire killed a firefighter. Does the penalty fit?


Architects in the UK, where the average one-bedroom home is 495 square feet, are fighting for larger mandated minimum home sizes. Do you agree with this effort?
