Have architects been too focused on “egotistical” architecture; focusing on STARchitecture and abandoning the values of a true designer / architect? Have designers become disconnected with reality, become absorbed with vanity, and pining for validation? Guest speaker Obiekwe Okolo and our panelists will provide their thoughts about evolving design practices and professions.
