When I was an undergrad architecture student at [unnamed school] In the late 90s, one of our profs told us “you all will be one of the first generations to come of age after ADA ruined architecture.” He’s still teaching.

The ADA didn’t ruin architecture - it is only hampered by myopic designers incapable of envisioning a building without barriers. (BTW - this is less of an issue outside the U.S.and it is only our unwillingness to evolve and certain ambivalent educators that perpetuate this.

You can name the school -- or name the professor. Great schools can have bad teachers.

Recently met a lawyer who feels the same way today. He went on and on about why he had to submit to the tyranny of ADA regulations when no one in his office required them.

I'm guessing it was an old fossil type who has more understanding of ancient architecture than he ever will of the ADA and its purposes. Have met a few of them myself and it's maddening, for sure.
