    $125 for a simple class? there´s how they wanna make people ‘know architecture’? typical nyc situation!

    I imagine people spend just as much if not more on concert tickets. I doubt lowering the price would encourage otherwise uninterested people. Maybe if they throw in a laser show, fog machines, and over-priced tee-shirts more people would consider attending.

    …so they say Architecture has become “elite”.
    Only about 2% of the population hires an Architect… but 100% could benefit from his knowledge… what is going on???
