Perhaps in the face of the struggling architecture industry, Peter Eisenman offered up some thoughts at the recent Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland event (RIAS 2008) and Building Design was there to catch the whole thing, offering up a complete transcript of the six points he made to help get architecture back on track. It’s an interesting list, which does everything from say that computers have made architects lazy, schools are letting students become passive and how we’re at the end of a style of architecture, so we’d better prep for what’s to come and start approaching the coming change now, so that our current work doesn’t look so passe in the near future. It’s a really terrific, very frank read from a really interesting architect, so well worth your time.
