As architects, we should fight for keeping our hands in our projects and how our projects are communicated to the world. If we could, we would pick up the plane and cut our own foam. Obviously constructing buildings is a completely different process than an artist making a painting. However, we need to learn to manipulate the standardization and industrialization of the construction industry to our unique voice. It is a fight, and most of our architectural heroes have done it.
