Designer Exploitation

Well, someone gets it. I’ve written posts about the business side of the profession:

Should Design Schools Teach More About Business? …..

Then I saw this article about star architects taking on interns for no pay because they can…and how there are many signs pointing to many firms vanishing soon if architects don’t learn how to run a business.

Star Architects Urged to Stop Exploiting Students

The above is a good read. Its very true.

    Bob, the “Star Architects Urged…” article seems to have been completely removed from the internet after a semi-thorough search. It still comes up in search engine results, but they now point to the AR feed; after scrolling down to March 11, the headline is missing. Searching AR’s site appears fruitless as well.

    Have you downloaded the piece?
