Thank gawd for Ikea.
Unless it's hot. Then I wear black.

OK, this one's not fair, really. Architecture is one of the few professions I can think of where you are expected to have a broad knowledge of multiple fields. Architecture is part art, science, engineering, sociology, economics, politics, ecology, technology, psychology and so on. We can't know everything about all of these fields. We know just a little about everything, by training. This is probably why I'm nervous talking to you. You think I know what I'm talking about. But I don't.
Please, never let an architect choose your dining room chairs. They will be beautiful but uncomfortable and expensive.
Mainly because less takes more time.
I almost couldn't make this graphic. It hurts my head.
