One thought on “BOOK BLITZ: Castles in the Air by Sangeet Sharma

  1. Architects are idiots. Any time an architect gets involved when we have to deal with a house layout, that just about doubles our workload.
    They can’t use CADD to save their life, can’t close an angle if their clients life depended on it, their so called “plans” aren’t worth the paper and ink they’re made of and finally, they never, ever, EVER let reality get in the way of what they are designing.
