The funny thing about being an architect, I think you need to have sophisticated appreciation (not just understanding) of form regardless of funciton to be a decent architect.
Sadly very true. Although I am a math and engineer geek, I got into architecture because I LOVE design. I am kind of crap designer (although a great PM), but I can appreciate it when I see it.

Fashion is similar - I like it and there's a lot that seems similar to me to my field. I watch "Project Runway" simply because it reminds me of a cattier, more high-drama version of architecture school (and I love Tim Gunn).
