Day 3 - Civic Duty?
Today I had Jury Duty, and the Judge spoke at great length about the importance of donating our time as citizens to this cornerstone of our American Legal System. I was never called, but sitting in the courthouse basement all day gave me lots time to think about Civic Duty and Architecture. Do Architects have an inherent responsibility within their communities, or only to their clients? Do our duties begin and end with the life of a contract? Perhaps we have opportunities rather than responsibilities? One way or another. Architects see the world a little bit differently and that's what we talk about today. I hope you enjoy it.
