Architect as.. Indiana Jones?

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

TV program developer William Wiegman is looking for a sexy architect (yes, that does exist) to host a new reality show he’s pitching that “takes viewers on an exploration of the world’s most famous rooftops.” Details on the show are still vague (the producers don’t want anyone stealing their ideas…), but according Wiegman, the “architect must be photogenic, male, 30-45, adventurous, and have an engaging personality on-camera. He must possess the physical agility of a rock climber and the intellectual prowess of an architectural historian.” Good idea, because this architect needs to be filmed standing on building roofs, among other things.  Send resume and photos to Deadline for submissions is September 20.

    Can we make nominations?

    How about Joshua Prince-Ramus, Wendell Burnett,, John Frane, or Jennifer Siegal?

  5. Chas says:

    Child please! After 30 years in the profession, there are NO, I repeat NO attractive women in architectural practice —-you must be thinking of Interiors!

  6. Dude says:

    How about Zaha Hadid in a string bikini on the rooftop of Villa Savoye? Now that will bring in the ratings!

  7. Ethan says:

    The Zaha image is pretty hard to top.
    Bonus Feature:
    Zaha vs. Joshua Prince-Ramus Celebrity Death Match?

    Chas please. I hope your comment is a big joke because otherwise you are so chauvinistically wrong. There are MANY and I repeat MANY attractive women architects. We might have to have a bit tougher skin just to survive on a construction site but don’t let that deter you from our looks. Get your head away from your dizzying cad program and wake up.

    Btw- Who is William Wiegman? Is this the same guy who worked for The Gospel Channel and ShopAtHome? Are we to take this seriously? Mmmm…….

    Chas, did you really just say ‘Child Please’? Maybe you think there are no attractive women in architecture because you are not attracted to women. I’m just sayin’.
