ruminations about architecture and design

inside outside up and down

What should an architect really know? Here's a short list off the top of my head:

-Client personality and goals
-Construction materials
-Methods and process of construction delivery
-Ability to convey the major ideas of a building or space before it is built
-Relative time required for design and construction tasks
-Relative cost of design and construction tasks
-Impact of design and construction decisions on the environment

How much of that is taught in design schools?
