Full story: WFMZ

Harvey Wiley Corbett "Architects may come and architects may go and never change your point of view, when I run dry I stop awhile and think of you." Simon and Garfunkel were "thinking" of the pioneering genius of their hero, modern architect Frank Lloyd Wright, when they wrote this lyric.

Architects only draw the plans up, the real artists are the craftsman, and laborers who build the building...those are the ones who deserve all the credit

Maybe some of the credit, but not all of it. It's not like anyone can just go out and draw up building plans on MS paint. It's a team effort all around. Quality work is as important as quality design.
