What is architecture? by Marcio Kogan

Studio SC by Marcio Kogan StudioMK27

Marcio Kogan, one of the best representatives of contemporary brazilian architecture true spirit, says in this interview, something I have been joking about for some years now. I say it as a joke (as he does too) but its actually quite accurate, specially nowadays.
“architects are a little like prostitutes: our job is to give pleasure to others…”
I have already come to terms that all these years of study end up in this simple truth, my only 2 questions are:
1. Pleasure of others, at what price?
2. Are there limits to say no?
I could use some help here!
Thank you…
