In the course of my weekend reading I just discovered the mentor of my Arch History professor was the favored student, employee, and protègé of my second least favorite Architect.
So my Professor's Professor's Professor was someone who's designs I dislike greatly*.
This is important, because I am apt to bring up one of said Architect's buildings as an example of pretty but failed design.
However, not in this class.
*In fairness his ideas are frequently great, it's just the niggly little details that make the buildings usable for humans he kept screwing up.
