029: Architects Should Work Construction

If I have one regret during my college education is that I never worked on a construction site. Once I graduated from college, I went straight to work in an architectural office, drawing up all sorts of stuff that I had literally never seen before in my life. I managed to get along but I was acutely aware of my lack of practical knowledge and I have been trying to make up for it over the last 20+ years.

I should point out that this doesn't necessarily mean talking about yourself, it means talking about things from your perspective.

As far a site measures go, I've done some pretty horrific site measures before and let me tell you, this one doesn't even crack my top 50.
