He seems unemployable but finally lands a job with like-minded Henry Cameron. However, within a few years, Cameron drinks himself to death, warning Roark that the same fate awaits unless he compromises his ideals. Roark is determined to retain his artistic integrity at all costs.

Wat ass Architektur? has been initiated to raise questions on various topics related to architecture, while presenting their relevance in a national and international context.
