    Can someone please publicly criticise the Sou Fujimoto internship policy before an architecture student dies like that banker in US?

    Sou Fujimoto, you are not worthy…your minutes of glory in the WAF will be thanks to the blood of many interns that you do not pay i nthe office. As Miralles and Alejandro Zaera. Slavers

    The internship policy is coming from Japanese culture. Interns are treated as apprentices and the supervisors have to take care of them as their masters. The relationship is very traditional and inheritance is more important than employment.
