I use this article to give other point of view, those who trapped in bad design circle. Professionals seems pat each other's back and sure that rules (or breaking them), concepts and guide lines are excellent and novice are eager to follow them, too. Here some pictures my husband took for me, later I checked and I didn't like them, nether our daughter. The prices between 500-700k, rare house cost less around here. Who thinks they are for poor people? Or who think they were not designed by architect? And who think there school for bad architect (for poor folks) and school for good architect (custom) for 10% of population? I believe they are universal professionals in first place, then they have different work places and experience.

I would add a ninth idea except it rarely happens: “They see how the design worked out and learn from it”. Steward Brand’s excellent book, How Buildings Learn, talks at length about how architects rarely if ever actually evaluate the use of a building once completed much to the chagrin of those that have to live and/or work in the buildings. Similar points in Michael Pollan’s also excellent book, A Place of My Own
