Is the 21st century the era of architects?
“In the 19th century the issue was industrial production, we were in the era of Engineers. In the 20th century the issue was the mass marketing of products and services, we were in the era of marketing. In the 21st century the challenge is the integration of business, organization and engineering, we are now in the area of Architects.”
An interesting quote from Lionel Novo, CIO at FGAO. I’m biased, but I would like to think that he is right – and that we do need the unique techniques and approach of EA to help us live through the challenges of the 21st century.
