ARCHITECTURE: Master-Apprentice.

At times there is a carry over of this attitude by studio masters in
an academic setting. Why? The larger question is related to getting
an education in an academic setting without studios and masters. I would
encourage some thought and discussion about this question. Howard

Actually I am a great fan of his architecture. However, I have friends
who work for him and having spent some time at the office and talking to
them I lost a great deAl of respect for him as a person. His work is fine
with me but he doesn't have to treat employees the way he does. For that
matter it seems thAt many of the 'great' architects treat employees as
slaves or other supposed subhumans. All that I am looking for is a firm
that recognizes the contributions that all employees make in terms of
creativity, time, and simple backbreaking labor.
