one thing they should do is to try to make the built environment part of their daily life. too many people are willing to look at architecture because it is permanent. it's something that can be out of step with their daily life. Another thing (that I find in southern california) is that people have expectations for technology, they have expectations for their lifestyle, but they don't apply those expectations to the building industry.
I think, if young architects are interested in robotics, then they should find a way to integrate it into the building. if they are interested in certain materials, they should find a way to integrate these into the buildings. If they like video games, they should find a way to have a building more like a video game and less like a book. trying to keep the level high for architecture is really a challenge because I think people have low expectations for it.
