Something I designed is currently under construction and in the next week it will start the "moment of truth" phase of the building process. If part A has not been drawn to properly receive part B then it will be time for tears and finger-pointing.
Architects learn to accept mistakes. Some mistakes are hidden forever. Some are corrected in a half-assed fashion. Sometimes there is an apology and nothing else. The world hasn't seen a perfect building yet.
So, is an architect who claims to be a perfectionist a delusional idiot?
The heat in Boston is a real thing right now. Should I water my garden or wait for rain?
