Design Errors


I was thinking how my career can be summarized in three parts:
  1. Telling a colleague why the masterpiece they've designed, or the part thereof, is so expensive the Owner will not want to pay for it.
  2. Telling a colleague why what they've designed will not function, will leak, will be inaccessible, unbuildable or impossible to clean.
  3. Making those same mistakes first.
