In this corner, the person who designs corners and window placement. AIA Arechitect

And in this corner, the guy who required a street corner, the AICP Planner. (Crowd Goes Wild)

In what situations would one be better than the other? For example, if an AIA got in a bar fight with and AICP, who would win.

^^^I provided a verbal recommendation yesterday for a former employee who is up for a position with her childhood hometown - one of the big things they asked about was my opinion on her ability to do this.

The AICP at least thinks about the children. Then smacks them and makes them cry.

I'll take drinking with AICP over AIA any day, but if you really want to part join the CFM crowd.

An AICP will talk to you endlessly by sharing the globalocity of their knowledge, whereas an AIA will just tell you that you're stupid.
