Wolfe said it best
Regarding architectural credits in your feature articles [Letter, "Our mall will be botched," September 2, 2004]: I love architects. Their efforts often tremendously enhance our daily experience, as do the efforts of the tradespeople who bring architectural concepts to fruition.
Tom Wolfe wrote in A Man in Full: "...the sun was exploding off the towers of Downtown and Midtown Atlanta... Charlie knew them all by sight. He knew them not by the names of the architects– what were architects but neurotic and 'artistic' hired help?– but by the names of their developers."
Indeed, what is any of us?
