I read this letter and felt it should be shared with all architects. It inspired me. It is a letter from a young architect to them and their response.
click this link which takes you to Build, LLC's blog, and read this post. Reading time approx. 5 minutes. They are great architect, builders, and have been very nice guys to me.
