#51 - Architectural Fight Club

Welcome to Architectural Fight Club. The first rule of Architectural Fight Club is: you do not talk about Architectural Fight Club. The second rule of Architectural Fight Club is: you DO NOT talk about Architectural Fight Club! 

For Episode 51, Archispeak breaks the first rule of Architectural Fight Club and discusses architecture's so-called "crisis of confidence." As more and more mainstream figures in the field are admitting that the profession has lost its way, we ask the question: what, if anything, can architects do?
