Here is a great and well written letter from Kimon Onuma, explaining the current dangers the AIA and the architectural community at large is facing...or not facing depending on how you look at it. I especially like the part,
"Imagine if authors and screenwriters depended on Microsfot for their creativity. Would they wait for the next version of MS Word to be able to put out a new novel? Do they look to Bill Gates for creativity beyond that of creating the software that they use to write that screenplay? That is where most architects are, we are looking to the software vendors to give us the answers..."
Interesting read and spot on accurate read to say the least.
