John Conklin confesses that the prospect of speaking at an architecture school prompted some thinking about what a stage designer does compared with what an architect does. He asks why one of the worst things anyone can say about a building is that it looks like a stage set. He proposes that theater can be seen as a central metaphor for life. Conklin discusses how the theater experience has changed since the early Elizabethan theaters.
