Eval

The inter-office discussion today spurred from G-dubya's visit to NE...it began with politics and evolved into architecture? I still don't understand the connection. But curiously we all talked about the difference between what school had taught us to anticipate what the arch office world would be like and the reality of paperwork, deadlines, and cmu. So, put it to the blog they said!

Survey: How many of us/you are slightly dissapointed with the post graduation reality you've been faced with?

Jealous, Wyatt - I miss warm sunshine!

i THINK THE REALITY OF YOUR ROLE BECOMS VERY APPARENT. YOU COME OUT OF SCHOOL BRIMMING WITH CUTTING EDGE PUSH THE ENVELOPE IDEAS, AND THEN GET PUT BACK IN YOUR PLACE WHEN YOU DONT KNOW THE ADA HANDRAIL CODE FOR ACCESSIBLE BATHROOMS. I CAME OUT TRYING TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD AND HAVE BECOME SENATOR OF THE STFI PERMIT (SUBJECT TO FIELD INSPECTION_

FROSTY..YOU NAILED IT.
I CAME OUT OF THE ARCHITECTURE WOMB READY TO REINVENT, RESTORE AND REALIZE A PERFECTION IN DESIGN THROUGH RESPONSIVE THINKING AND SOCIAL AWARENESS. BUT I CAN NOT FREELY CALL OUT THE NOMINAL AND ACTUAL WIDTHS OF TIMBER, NOR DO I KNOW HOW TO WIRE A CABLE CHASE BETWEEN A SIP PANEL AND A KALWALL UNIT AS WELL AS HAVING IT BE BURLY ENOUGH TO ACT AS A TIE STRAP TO THE BUILDING.

SO I GET SHUNNED BY MY HIGHER POWERS AND GET PUSHED INTO DRAWING THEIR DETAIL BECAUSE "THEY HAVE DONE IT BEFORE AND IT WORKS" REGARDLESS OF THE FACT THAT IT IS GOD UGLY. BUT THE BUDGET DOESN'T ALLOW FOR ENDLESS HOURS OF RESEARCH AND TRIAL AND ERROR LIKE THE GOOD OLD DAYS OF CAPLA.

Jessica, I think thats where Folan would tell you that you need to stay late at work and draw and develop the better detailed version and not charge the hours (because you are learning, and they shouldnt have to pay you when you're learning something)
